the Generous Keanu Reeves It is not a mystery. Over the years, in fact, it has been confirmed by colleagues and ordinary people, but there is more. In fact, the actor has always been personally involved in the fight against cancer. Just about this comes the news: Reeves allegedly donated 70% of his profits to Matrix Research.
