Pro wrestler helps kid with rare disease

Pro Wrestler Helps Kid With Rare Disease


"Super Bo," as his friends and family call him, has been battling a rare genetic condition his entire life. So rare, in fact, doctors named it "Bo Syndrome" after the 5-year-old.

Bo is a Type 1 insulin-dependent diabetic who has seizures and no immune system. And with any illness, comes bills ... a lot of bills.

"You have all these people that want to help, and from our standpoint, it's really hard. It's really hard to ask for that help, even though we need that help," Bo's mother Carolyn Macan told KSHB.

But help came anyway. A few months ago, a friend of Bo's mom, Carolyn Macan, reached out to her on Facebook.

He's Derek McQuinn, or "Dangerous Derek," a pro-wrestler and two-time heavyweight champion for the WLW. Despite McQuinn and Macan not having been in touch for decades, McQuinn wanted to use his connections to set up a fundraiser for Bo. Carolyn agreed.

And, as you can see from Carolyn's Instagram, The Super Show for Super Bo was born.

Some WWE superstars will be attending the event, and some pretty cool items are going to be raffled off, like a training session with an NFL quarterback and an autograph from an NFL Hall-of-Famer.

And the promotions for the event have also been entertaining. At one point, Bo took out a WDAF anchor with some of his newly-acquired wrestling moves.

The only tickets left are general admission, so the Jan. 17 event is likely going to be a body slammin' success.

A success for a family in need. WDAF says in 2014, Bo spent 163 out of 365 days in the hospital.
