Additionally, journalist, Joan Lunden, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, will sit ringside as a special guest along with other breast cancer survivors. As TODAY’s special #PinkPower correspondent for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lunden is celebrating survivors, supporting those currently battling cancer and remembering those we have lost.

“WWE is thrilled to have Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb and Joan Lunden join Monday Night Raw to help shine a light on the battle against breast cancer,” said Stephanie McMahon, Chief Brand Officer, WWE. “These women continue to be a voice for the millions that are affected by this devastating disease.

This month WWE and Susan G. Komen will expand their partnership for their third annual breast cancer awareness campaign. The “Courage Conquer Cure” campaign will continue throughout National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and WWE will donate to Komen 20% of the retail sales price of all co-branded merchandise sold on WWEShop.com and at WWE live events, as well as 5% of all other WWE merchandise sold on WWEShop.com.

For the first time, fans will have the option of donating $1, $5 or $10 upon checkout from WWEShop.com with all proceeds benefiting Komen.

WWE and Komen will also feature special “Keep Calm and Never Give Up” t-shirts inspired by WWE Superstar John Cena®, “Support the Twins” t-shirts and pink Hulk Hogan® “HulkamaniaTM” t-shirts.
“WWE has made a tremendous commitment to women and men facing breast cancer, not only in October during National Breast Cancer Awareness month but all year round,” said Komen President and CEO Judith A. Salerno, M.D., M.S. “WWE’s partnership has raised funds for Komen’s research and health programs, and helped us reach millions of people with potentially life-saving information about their risk for breast cancer. We’re deeply grateful to our friends at WWE and their fans worldwide for their commitment to our mission to end breast cancer forever.”



Susan G. Komen and WWE have a history of success in raising awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The partnership launched in 2012 with the successful “Rise Above Cancer” campaign and has generated more than $1.2 million for Komen to date.

The two organizations also partnered for “Make Mom Proud,” a campaign that coincided with Mother’s Day and called on supporters to do something meaningful for their moms and other important women in the their lives. This past May, Komen and WWE teamed up again for National Women’s Health Week with a campaign critical in the fight against breast cancer.
