Earlier this month, I ran a story from Brainstorm Brewery about a twitter follower of mine who was diagnosed with cancer and found Magic: the Gathering to be the kind of diversion he needed to help him get through the long and difficult recovery process. He celebrated his victory by buying Hypnotic Specter, his favorite card and one that was now symbolic of his win over the disease.
Today we have an update. When I shared the story with various social media outlets, Wizards of the Coast's own Worth Wollpert contacted me asking for the author's address. The story inspired a lot of people and Worth wanted to send him a package. Well, it arrived today.
Worth had the R&D team sign a playset of hippies and they arrived just in time for Christmas. If this doesn't make you proud to be a part of this community, I don't know what will.
Happy Holidays, everyone.
