Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool & 20th Century Fox Partner With Omaze To Fight Cancer
Ryan Reynolds charmed audiences in 2016’s Deadpool as the titular mutant thanks to his humor and unorthodox heroics. However, Reynolds, again in-character as the Marvel vigilante, is now fighting a battle against cancer in partnership with the nonprofit organization F–k Cancer. If you want to donate money, Deadpool is hosting an Omaze campaign, and you might even win his new pink suit.
DEADPOOL PARTNERS WITH F— CANCER
Deadpool’s fans are likely aware that cancer is a cause that hits close to home for the antihero, so his involvement in a fundraising campaign makes sense. In Deadpool’s public address, he wants the “world to see that I have a big old heart-on” for the color pink. Given the character’s lack of subtly, his apartment is now decked out with several pink objects, such as lawn flamingos, pink lights and a white pillow that repeatedly reads “FEMINIST” in pink letters.
According to the Omaze page, F— Cancer “believes that people diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families and support network, should have equitable access to early detection, prevention and psychosocial support.” You can donate as little as $10 for the cause, and that alone will enter you for “100 chances” to win Deadpool’s stylized pink suit. Additionally, if you donate $1,500, you’ll obtain a Deadpool DVD/Blu-ray package signed by the foul-mouthed mercenary, and $5,000 will net you a voice message from the star himself.
Moreover, Deadpool’s fans won’t have to wait long to see more of his antics, as Deadpool 2 is slated to crash into theaters on May 18.
