Tony Acevedo, a young boy with Hodgkin’s Disease, is a HUGE Deadpool fan! Thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation, Tony was able to hang out with Ryan Reynolds on the set of the highly anticipated Deadpool movie.
Ryan Reynolds posted this touching photo on his Instagram this morning.
“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he can meet Deadpool. I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile, and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms, and jugular with blazing speed. Tony’s next fight is with Hodgkin’s Disease. Hodgkin’s Disease best be wearing its brown pants.” – Ryan Reynolds.
Nice “brown pants” reference!
Hodgkin’s Disease is a cancer of the lymphatic system, a type of lymphoma.
We wish Tony well and a huge shout out to Ryan Reynolds and Make A Wish Foundation for making this happen!
Deadpool hits theaters February 12, 2016. We’re very pumped for this movie!
