Lots of stuff can trend on Twitter these days, but it isn’t every day something’s trending that makes your heart go out. Ryan Kennedy is a 9-year-old boy battling cancer, always a scary thing, especially at such a young age. His wish is to get his name trending on Twitter, and people throughout the Twitterverse are taking up the cause, tweeting and retweeting #RyanKennedy and talking about the brave boy’s story. Actor and all-around hunk Channing Tatum took up the Twitter call to arms and gave us this detailed (well, detailed as far as Twitter goes) info:
Of course his tweet took off. Thanks for spreading the word, Channing — you’re awesome and um, perfect! But he wasn’t the only celeb bringing our attention to Ryan and what he’s going through. Britney Spears and Adam Lambert also got involved. Brit wrote the following heartfelt tweet:

Touched by the reaction, she added:

Our one and only Glambert didn’t go into all the details, but he got the name trending, too:
