Ryan Reynolds has written a heartfelt note about one of his fans, a 13-year-old boy in Edmonton, who died of cancer this week.
McGrath spent much of the last three years in Edmonton's Stollery Children's Hospital "repeatedly punching cancer in the balls" and "making everyone laugh," Reynolds said.
"I'm grateful I got to orbit Connor's world for a brief time. Grateful for the pages and pages of hilarious texts between us. Grateful to his parents for allowing Connor to spend time with a foul-mouthed child in the body of a 39 year old."
Reynolds said things didn't look too hopeful last time he visited McGrath. "After my visit, I didn't know if I was saying goodbye or see ya later. Sitting here now, I realize it was both."
"See ya down the road, Bubba."
