Ryan Reynolds, star of the newest Marvel Comics movie Deadpool, posted a message to his facebook page about Connor McGrath, an Edmonton boy diagnosed with High Risk A.L.L., a form of childhood leukemia, in 2013 and relapsed again last May.
“Ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls. This is my friend, Connor McGrath,” wrote Reynolds alongside a picture of him and McGrath. “He’s quite possibly the biggest ?#Deadpool? fan on earth. He was also the first person ever to see the Deadpool film.”
“The Deadpool was right up his alley because Connor’s the funniest, potty-mouthed Canadian mercenary I’ve ever met,” he said.
