Terminally Ill Star Wars Fan Gets His Wish Granted.

32 year-old Daniel Fleetwood is from Texas and has a rare form of tissue cancer. He was only given a few months to live in July. So the producers of Star Wars screened the movie yesterday for Daniel.

His wife Facebooked: “Daniel just finished watching an unedited version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We would like to thank the awesomely talented JJ Abrams for calling us yesterday to tell us Daniel was getting his wish granted … I want to thank ALL the amazing people who helped make this happen, thank you beyond words. May the force be with you all.”

Mark Hamill posted: “I just read this and am elated for Daniel & his family! Thanks to the powers-that-be for making his dream come true”
