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.
