Ryan Reynolds is Canada’s sweetheart.
Meet Connor McGrath, the 13 year old boy who passed away from cancer. When he was 10 he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and for 3 years he fought the toughest battle anyone could ever fight, but sadly he passed away this week surrounded by his loved ones.

Reynolds made a beautiful Facebook tribute to Connor and suggests donating money to Make-A-Wish. You can read his statement below:
