Reynolds thrills sick fan

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has helped to lift a young fan's spirits by sending a personalized video message as he battles cancer.

Brody Dery has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and inflammatory bowel condition Crohn's disease, and he and his mother have been finding solace in rewatching Reynolds as the Marvel Comics anti-hero while the 11 year old undergoes treatment.

The actor recently heard about Dery's health crisis, and sent along a special message, which has since been shared on Twitter by reporter Caden Fanshaw.

In the footage, Reynolds 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. 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. OK pal, bye."

Brody's mother, Randi, reveals her boy couldn't be happier with the sweet gesture.

She told CTV News: "He keeps saying, 'I feel special - I feel like I'm the movie star.'"
