Daniel Fleetwood is a 32-year-old man from Texas. He’s married, he’s as big a nerd as you’ll find, and (of course) he’s eagerly anticipating the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie. He’s also terminally ill. Fleetwood was diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma, a rare connective tissue cancer, in 2013. The disease spread quickly and on September 2, 2015 doctors told Fleetwood he only had two months to live. Although he’s made it this far it’s unlikely he’ll make it to the official December 18 release date of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“. That’s where you come in. Star Wars actors Mark Hamill and John Boyega retweeted this news story about #ForceForDaniel to help Fleetwood see the movie early.
And Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the new movie, posted this on her official Instagram page.
