Owing to Wes' condition, it wasn't possible for him to travel out to Bethesda's studios in Maryland, so Bethesda brought Fallout 76 to him. Last week, Matt Grandstaff, an assistant director at the studio, drove out to Wes' home with a copy of the game for him to enjoy for a few hours (he wasn't able to keep it, unfortunately) and a power armor helmet signed by Todd Howard.
Wes's parents documented the visit on Facebook, and if this story has melted your iron heart like it has ours, there's also a GoFundMe to cover his medical expenses. As for Bethesda, they're currently auctioning off a limited-edition Xbox One (as are several other celebrities) in order to raise money for Make-A-Wish.
So yeah, like, go do all of that and give whatever real-life caps you can. It's for a good cause.
