Reynolds says Connor McGrath was the first person to see the movie. Now he's hoping to inspire people to donate to his cause with a sweet post on Facebook:
About 6 weeks ago, I traveled to Edmonton Alberta to show Connor the movie at his hospital. Of course, the 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 s**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.
