Ryan Reynolds Supports Young Deadpool Fan With Cancer

Ryan Reynolds Supports Young Deadpool Fan With Cancer

Ryan Reynolds is asking fans to help Connor McGrath, a young Deadpool fan who is struggling with cancer.

In a Facebook post on Friday (February 12) the 39-year-old actor wrote, “Ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls. This is my friend, Connor McGrath. He’s quite possibly the biggest ‪‎Deadpool‬ fan on earth. He was also the first person ever to see the Deadpool film. Like Wade Wilson, Connor’s trying to put cancer in his rearview mirror.

About 6 weeks ago, I traveled to Edmonton Alberta to show Connor the movie at his hospital. Of course, Deadpool was right up his alley because Connor’s the funniest, potty-mouthed Canadian mercenary I’ve ever met.

He’s my friend. I know lots of celebrities jump up and down touting a cause — and maybe I’m no different. But holy frozen sh-t-slivers, I love this kid. He’s the GREATEST. And he needs your help to get well. I’ve donated to help Connor and I hope you will too. ”

Fans can donate to Connor on his YouCaring page.
