16-year-old Kevin Gentry, who has Down syndrome, was thrilled to see his icon John Cena in the ring on March 8 at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania. But he didn’t know that the day would become the best day of his life – not only did the professional WWE wrestler hug Kevin, he gave the teen his ‘Never Give Up’ sweatband too!
“To witness this event — wow. I cried. Kevin shows unconditional love to anyone in his company. He’s one of 30 cousins, and he brings joy to all. To watch him meet his hero was incredible. After the event, he came up to my husband and me and said, ‘Thank you. This was the best day of my life’,” Eileen Ryan, Kevin’s aunt said.
