Let­ter Ma­nia

India Today - - LEISURE -

Scott Widak, 47, from Mas­sachusetts, US, has Down Syn­drome and is ter­mi­nally ill with liver dis­ease. Widak’s nephew Sean O’con­nor de­cided to lift his un­cle’s spir­its with some help from the on­line world. “He is cur­rently bedrid­den and liv­ing out his last days at home with my 85- year- old grand­mother. One of his fa­vorite things to do is open mail… any­one feel like send­ing him a let­ter or card?” O’con­nor posted on Red­dit, a so­cial news web­site. Widak has since re­ceived hun­dreds of let­ters from across the world.
