Seven-time WWE women’s champion and Hall-of-Famer Trish Stratus is joining the fight against Lymphoma.
She’s raising funds to help end the condition her mother Alice battled and overcame through chemotherapy.
Turns out Lymphoma had a significant impact in her life.
“As most of you know, my mom was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2006, and you may or may not know that was one of the reasons for me making the decision to retire from WWE,” she explained. “I knew if I was on the road, I wouldn’t be able to be by her side for treatment. So, as you can imagine when I got asked recently to be involved with this event, I jumped on board!”
Take it to the Mat is a yoga and health wellness event that takes place November 2nd at 9:30am.
The goal is $1000 CAD. As of this writing, approximately $355 has been raised.
Lymphoma Canada is a national organization dedicated to “empowering lymphoma patients and the lymphoma community through education, support, and research.”
Lymphoma received some attention in the nineties when NHL hockey superstar Mario Lemieux endured Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
MMA Crossfire readers interested in contributing can donate by sponsoring Trish. Amounts over $20 CAD are eligible for a tax receipt.

Stratus made sure to emphasize: “I thank you in advance for helping, your support means a lot to me – and my mom … and for those affected by Lymphoma!”
