Steven Spice, is the newest recipient of “The Pasquale D’Amore Prize for Kids Making A Difference.” Steven embodies a degree of strength matched only by his unbreakable spirit. He was diagnosed in 2016 with a brain disorder that affects .01% of the world’s population called Chiari Malformation which is where his brain herniates out of his skull due to a malformation of the skull into the spinal cord.
Steven is a huge wrestling fan and Impact Wrestling was kind enough to provide tickets and a VIP Experience to him and his family. They were provided with ringside tickets; Steven accompanied a wrestler to the squared circle; was afforded the opportunity to pin a wrestler in the ring; and was given merchandise and autographs. Impact Wrestling truly made an impact on his life. A big thank you goes out to Scott D’Amore and Ross Forman for making this happen and putting a smile on Steven’s face despite his pain.
Steven is the grandson of the late Steven Spice. The latter worked at Rogers Cable and was a mentor to the youth who worked with him. The Spice family were kind enough to submit Steven’s artwork to our online competition. Steven drew his picture from the perspective of how he felt when he was being bullied. Check out his drawing at our upcoming Art Exhibit of kids anti-bullying works at Alexandra Park Community Centre on August 15, 2018.
A. Weiss Comics provided Steven with a gift bag (comic book, Viola Desmond poster, Gary’s Global Heroes Battle Bullying! t-shirt) and a “Gary’s Global Heroes Battle Bullying!” certificate of accomplishment for being a real-life superhero.
