Redditor kivakid approached the community with a question. His friend has terminal cancer and his doctors weren’t sure if he would make it past the summer. His dying wish was to finish The War That Came Early series by Harry Turtledove, but the last in the series isn’t set for release for some time. 

He asked Reddit if there was anyway he could get his hands on an early copy to give to his sick friend, he even wrote a letter to the author. As usual, Reddit went on a crusade to get an early copy, and was successful

Now, after receiving the special early copy, here’s the reaction video of him giving his sick friend a late b-day gift. Nachu is literally lost for words over the moving gift.
