Ryan Reynolds recorded a special message for an 11-year-old fan, Brody Dery, battling fan stage 3B Hodgkins Lymphoma and Crohn’s disease.
In the video, shared on Twitter by CKPG News reporter Caden Fanshaw, Ryan says, “Brody, it’s Ryan Reynolds. I just heard a little bit about your story and I wanted to send you this video and let you know that I’m thinking about you and I’m sending you tons of love and I’m sending you strength, whatever strength I’ve got.”
“Man, you have a ton of people in your life that love you so much,” Reynolds continued. “I know you’ve been going through it, I know it’s been a challenge lately but you know something, Brody, you’re just the man for the job.”
“So I’m sending you lots of love. I hope I get to meet you in person one of these days and hang in there. Okay pal, bye.”
Brody’s mom told CKPG, “His jaw hit the floor,” she said. “He keeps saying, ‘I feel special – I feel like I’m the movie star.'”
How cool is this? Huge thanks to @VancityReynolds for taking the time to send a message back to Brody Dery from Prince George. Thanks to everyone for helping get the message to Ryan so fast! @ckpgnews pic.twitter.com/dFJJi6huC1
