I know how tough it is to deal with cancer. I want to show people that even someone like me can be knocked down, but with the right treatment and support, we get back up to fight another day. Join me and step up to take cancer down for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Big Climb on May 15th.

Roman Reigns has been open about his own battle with Leukaemia during his time in WWE. Reigns was initially diagnosed back in 2007 before entering remission around two years later. More recently in October 2018, Reigns revealed that his Leukaemia had returned and that he was taking a break from the ring.
However, following treatment, Reigns returned to WWE in February 2019, announcing that he was again in remission.
