A 13-year-old Edmonton-based cancer patient who met actor Ryan Reynolds earlier this year, has died.
Radio station VOCM is reporting Connor McGrath, originally of Newfoundland, passed away Tuesday.
Last year, a fundraising effort was launched to help him get access to an experimental leukemia treatment down in the United States.
The campaign got more attention when actor Ryan Reynolds visited McGrath in February. Connor was treated to an advance screening of the movie “Deadpool,” which was based on his favourite comic character. (scb)
