Back when he was pushed to the stratosphere and beyond by WWE, Reigns was stopped by a major setback when he announced that he was diagnosed with Leukemia for the second time in his life.

He had to take a long break to recover from what seemed like a career derailment.

Thankfully, ‘The Big Dog’ returned and announced his recovery, much to the joy of fans. Since then, he has been an active advocate for the LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society) and its effort to fight blood cancer. 

In 2018, he met with a group of children who were fighting the disease as part of an LLS Children’s initiative collaboration with WWE. The children came to the WWE ring and interacted with Roman Reigns after which he left them with motivational messages. 

In a recent post on Twitter, ‘The Tribal Chief’ revealed that he reconnected with that group to catch up with them as a mini-reunion. Reigns talked with them and asked them what they were up to today as you can see below. 

Roman Reigns ensures others have the same support as he did

Roman Reigns has worked tirelessly to ensure others have the same support as he did suffering from Leukemia. The star is a two-time survivor of cancer and was initially diagnosed back in 2008. In the clear after a very hard time, he is back to his best and intends to make the most of his run.

Fans never thought Roman Reigns as a babyface was working out, so he decided to completely re-invent his character and turned heel. This character returned at SummerSlam last year after which he won the WWE Universal Championship a week later.
