32-year-old Daniel Fleetwood has been a life-long Star Wars fan since he was 8 years old. Tragically, he was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, and his one dying wish is to be able to see The Force Awakens before it's too late.

To get an idea of just how much this means to him, you need to understand that...

He's written fan fiction novels set in the Star Wars universe

He's camped out in line to be the first to see the movies

And has amassed an impressive collection of memorabilia ever since

It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that Daniel Fleetwood is desperate to see J.J. Abrams' new movie. But due to his critical condition, its December 17 release date might be a little too far away.

"Judging by how progressive the disease has gotten in the past two months," Daniel Fleetwood told his local TV station. "I really don't think that I'll be able to make it."

Fleetwood's wife, Ashley, is determined to make her husband's dream come true.

"It's a commitment and he still has that commitment, that drive, and that love and I think that it's a beautiful thing. Even if it's just a movie. That's magic for a lot of people."

Of course, Disney would have to arrange a private viewing for Daniel, but you can help make that happen.

"I really don't think I'm going to make it. Please do what you can. Help me."

Star Wars alumni Mark Hamill, John Boyega and Warwick Davis have all rallied behind Fleetwood, showing their support by retweeting the hashtag .

Let's all get behind this amazing cause to make sure Daniel has his dying wish granted by Disney.
