Grab the tissues.

Ryan Reynolds met a young fan battling cancer, Tony Acevedo, on the Vancouver set of his film Deadpool, fulfilling Acevedo’s wish to meet Deadpool as part of the Make a Wish foundation.

38-year-old Reynolds, who’s relatively new to Instagram still, posted a couple pics that will absolutely make your heart melt.

The new dad captioned the pics,

Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool. I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed.

Tony’s next fight is with Hodgkin’s Disease. Hodgkin’s Disease best be wearing its brown pants. Huge thanks to @makeawishamerica

The Make a Wish foundation reposted the pic to their Instagram, captioning it, “Thank you @vancityreynolds for granting Tony’s wish (and for making it so amazing!) We agree – Tony is going to give Hodgkin lymphoma a good fight! @makeawish_snv”

Reynolds joins the trend of superheroes doing good deeds for their young fans, such as Chris Pratt and Chris Evans who visited the Seattle Children’s Hospital and Christopher’s Haven in Boston, making good on their Super Bowl bet.

These acts of kindness are all the feels.

Deadpool is set for release on February 12, 2016. In the original comic book series, Deadpool’s alter-ego, Wade Wilson, battles cancer.
