Cezar Bononi’s wife was diagnosed with leukemia and has been receiving chemotherapy treatment. On April 10th, her sister donated her bone marrow as part of a transplant. His wife was also pregnant during the diagnosis last year, which only complicated the entire situation. Since this time, Bononi had started a GoFundMe page for his wife to cover all costs, but he has stopped the page as of May 31st.
Today, Bononi thanks everyone for their support and donations:
“We can’t thank you enough for your generous donation to Camila. It means so much to us and it’s truly going to help her recovery and to cover our expenses for the upcoming months. We are completely overwhelmed at the love, support and prayers that have been coming. Thank you all so very much from the bottom of our hearts for your kind and generous donations. We are ending this fundraiser today (May, 31st). Please keep the prayers coming. If you’d like to follow along on her journey, Camila is posting updates on Instagram @camibononi With Love, Bononi’s family.”
The GoFundMe ended with a total of $25,010. The top donation came from AEW President Tony Khan ($10,000). Other notable donations came from Chris Jericho ($1,500), Cody Rhodes ($1,000), Lance Archer ($300) and Matt Cardona ($300). There were other donations from wrestling but the names were withheld.
