WWE donates $1 million to UPMC Children’s Hospital

Local News

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday afternoon at UPMC Children’s Hospital. It comes after a $1 million donation from the WWE, represented by Cheif Branding Officer Stephanie McMahon and her husband, Executive Vice President, Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

“In 2014, Stephanie and Paul established Connor’s Cure, this is a fund dedicated to fighting pediatric cancer through supporting research. Connor’s Cure has raised more than $3 million to date.”

The gift from the WWE is to establish a family-centered MIBG Therapy Suite at the children’s hospital, which will become the only one of its kind in western Pennsylvania.

“This all started when we met Connor Michalek. After Connor lost his fight, Paul and I knew we had to do something and it started right here at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.”

The new suite will have the ability to provide care without needing to take the patient out of the room, even if critical care is needed.
