Honor Connor the Crusher's memory. Donate today.

The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has created Connor's Cure, a foundation to help research treatments and help find a cure for forms of pediatric brain and spinal cord cancers in addition to giving aid to families of the afflicted. The foundation was announced with personal funding from both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in memory of Connor Michalek, aka the Stone Crusher or Connor the Crusher. Daniel Bryan's #1 fan succumbed to a rare form of brain and spine cancer earlier this year, although not after being able to see his favorite wrestler win the day at WrestleMania XXX.

While most prospective donors cannot possibly fund the charity in the way that the Levesque/McMahon family has, every donation, no matter how large or small, helps. You can give money directly through the hospital's page. Cancer is an awful blight on humanity when it takes an adult (RIP Tony Gwynn), but it's a real dickbag when it takes the life of a child. Donate what you can to help fight this especially lethal form of pediatric cancer.
