Ryan Reynolds softens Hayley Wickenheiser’s demand for medical supplies


Hayley Wickenheiser’s call for medical supplies for frontline healthcare workers got help from actor Ryan Reynolds.

Wickenheiser is in medical school after retiring from a decorated hockey career that includes four Olympic gold medals.

On Monday, the 42-year-old woman from Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, pleaded for chemotherapy masks, gloves and dresses on her Twitter account.

“After the desperate calls from my frontline friends in Toronto, I decided to start a request,” Wickenheiser wrote in his article. “These items are not for my use at all. I’m not looking for money. “

Wickenheiser offered to pick up the items herself in Toronto with an “appropriate distance”.

“I don’t have much to offer in return, maybe a signed jersey, a smile and good Karma guaranteed,” she wrote.

Reynolds picked up the thread, stating that “the people who help Hayley” get personal protective equipment “will get something great from me.” “

The Canadian actor who starred in “Deadpool”, “Green Lantern” and “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” offered personalized videos and film memories.

Conquer COVID-19, an organization that helps healthcare workers get supplies, tweeted Monday night that it had collected five loads of medical supplies for the campaign. The tweet included a photo of Wickenheiser with one of the boxes of supplies.
