Mark Hamill Gives Back

About eight years ago, Joe Sikorra was facing the worst thing you can imagine: his son John had a terminal illness. He had already lost his sight and was having trouble with his short-term memory. John  had a wish to meet Luke Skywalker- the real Luke Skywalker, not the actor who plays him. The family turned to the only friend they knew in the film industry, screenwriter Ed Solomon. Solomon tells the story from there.  

You can read the original Twitter thread as Solomon shared the story yesterday. In the replies, there was one Tweet that stood out.

Read the complete story of the encounter at The Hollywood Reporter. -via Mashable

It is tough enough dealing with terminal illnesses within your own family. To take time out of his life to help someone else with their family is truly impressive. I wish stuff like this got more attention in the news from time to time.
