Man With Cancer Gets to See ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

- A terminally ill 32-year-old man had one final wish: To see the new ‘Star Wars’ movie. Following a social media campaign, that wish came true on Thursday.

Daniel Fleetwood’s wife, Ashley Fleetwood, posted to Facebook Thursday that thanks to Disney and Lucasfilm, Daniel was able to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The movie’s director JJ Abrams called the family yesterday to let them know, and Daniel watched the movie at his home in Texas.

Here’s the Facebook post:
