Daniel Fleetwood, the man with terminal cancer who successfully lobbied to see the next Star Wars film before his death, has died, his wife announced Tuesday on Facebook.
The 32-year-old of Spring, Texas, had a rare form of cancer called spindle cell sarcoma.
Fleetwood had been battling his illness for two years. In September, he was given one to two months to live.
With little time left, it had been Fleetwood's dying wish to see the next installment of the Star Wars franchise — Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters on Dec. 18.
Fleetwood had been a fan of the Star Wars films since he was 8 years old, his wife, Ashley, told BuzzFeed. He became hooked on the franchise after his dad introduced the original trilogy to him.
"He fell in love with them instantly, that's what he always told me," Ashley Fleetwood, 29, said. "And he camped out for the next three — Episodes I, II, and III."
