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.
