20th Century Fox and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool have teamed up with Omaze to support the nonprofit campaign, F*ck Cancer. In a special minute-long video, Deadpool declared his love for all things pink (but not the pop singer) and announced the opportunity for fans to become superheroes by joining the fight against cancer. The special pink Deadpool suit as well as other memorabilia will be included in a drawing open to anyone who donates at least $10 to the cause.
F*ck Cancer is a nonprofit dedicated to cancer prevention, early detection and providing support to those affected. Per the fundraising campaign’s website: “LetsFCancer 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. This incredible organization creates campaigns around behavior change and promotes scientifically proven routes for cancer prevention. It supports and runs programs around early dectecion and screening, in addition to providing psychosocial support to their community through retreats and events. And it provides the cancer community with a space to be heard, feel connected and unite both digitally and in person. LetsFCancer’s not just an organization, it’s a movement. Thanks for joining.”
