Daniel Fleetwood of Texas is only 32, he has cancer and only a few months left.
Daniel is also a Star Wars fan (who isn't).  Now a campaign getting him to see the latest installment "The Force Awakens" has caught the attention of the cast.

"Star Wars, The Force Awakens" is scheduled for release December 18th. According to doctors, If Daniel is still with us, he will be too ill to go to a theater and see the movie.  So it's kind of a Make A Wish for adults, which by the way, we have here in Idaho called "Wish Granters."

The hashtag #ForceForDaniel has been used on Twitter to bring attention to Fleetwood in hopes Disney will grant him his dying wish. Star Wars stars Mark Hamill and John Boyega both retweeted a post asking for help spreading the word about the campaign. Peter Mayhew also retweeted a different message, with the #ForceForDaniel hashtag.

The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams granted a similar wish for a dying fan in 2013.

If you send a tweet make sure you do your hashtag and get Daniel his final wish, I wish I could do more, hopefully your journey in the next life will be a good one.  "May the Force Be With You."
