Chris Evans, Gwyneth Paltrow & Robert Downey Jr. Assemble For Young Marvel Fan Battling Cancer


Members of The Avengers have assembled and this time in order to help support a young Marvel fan name Chris, who is battling cancer. Chris Evans, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. traveled to meet Ryan Wilcox.

A social media campaign started using the hashtag #RyanStrong and explaining that Ryan is a massive Captain America fan. Paltrow found out about the campaign and learned about Wilcox’s illness (Secondary Myelodysplastic Syndrome). As a result, Paltrow arranged for herself, Evans and Downey Jr., to fly to San Diego and meet Ryan and his family.

Paltrow documented the journey on Instagram, from their landing to meeting Ryan.

“Today @ryanwilcox0303 got a little surprise. Thank you to the incredible #chrisevans and my better work half @robertdowneyjr for being the men you both are. And thank you to the Wilcox family for your hospitality! #ryanstrong”

Before the Avengers team arrived in San Diego, Evans had sent him his own personalized video encouraging him to “keep fighting” and thanking him for his ongoing support and allegiance to Captain America.

Let's do this #ryanstrong @robertdowneyjr #chrisevans
