John Cena fulfilled 8-year-old Rocco’s Make-a-Wish dream to meet the WWE star earlier this year. But Rocco, who was undergoing treatment for leukemia, wasn’t feeling his best, so Cena wanted to make good on the original promise of the wish and visited Rocco on the set of Today.

Rocco and his mother appeared on the show’s Thursday episode, where Cena came out to surprise Rocco. In addition to providing Rocco with merchandise featuring Cena’s updated colors since the last time he visited, he also offered Rocco tickets to WWE Monday Night Raw so the two would have more of a chance to talk and hang out.

Today reports that Cena has visited hundreds of ailing children and that he’s the chartity’s most requested wish.

Watch Cena’s appearance and Rocco’s delighted reaction below.
