This Witcher 3 Fan Sent a Heartfelt Thank You to Polish Embassy After Beating Cancer

After successfully beating cancer, one Witcher 3 fan sent his appreciation of the series over to the Polish embassy in Washington, DC.

While we often turn to video games as a form of escapism, it’s sometimes understated how games can often be a source of comfort in hard circumstances. This especially seemed to the case for one Redditor that turned to The Witcher 3 in the struggle to beat cancer, and thanked the series’ home country of Poland in an extremely heartfelt way.

Over on r/Witcher, a Redditor by the name of “NotAfraidofAlQaeda” shared his appreciation for The Witcher series in a post, where he explained that the game helped him through his efforts in battling cancer and getting through surgery and chemotherapy. After successful treatments of the disease, he printed a sign that said “Thank You Poland for The Witcher” (with an image of the iconic wolf pendant that Geralt wears and left it outside the Polish embassy building in Washington, DC (as he lived near the area).

In response, the Polish embassy replied with a tweet of the sign outside the building in appreciation of his thanks, saying that they were “glad that you like The #Witcher from Poland too!”

While The Witcher series has been getting more attention than ever with the upcoming series from Netflix starring Henry Cavill and the Switch version of The Witcher 3 that is coming in October, it’s still heartening to hear how the series managed to help a longtime fan through an especially difficult circumstance.
