SPRING, TX - We've all heard sad stories about someone terminally ill, whose dying wish is to meet someone, or do something they've always wanted to do. But one man's request, is a little different.

Meet Daniel Fleetwood. He's at home on hospice with Spindle Cell Sarcoma, a connective tissue cancer that doctors say will soon kill him. But before that happens, Fleetwood wants to see the new Star Wars movie, "The Force Awakens."

The thing is, it doesn't come out until December 18th.

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

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

So, Fleetwood is reaching out to anyone he can -- including Walt Disney Studios -- asking to see the movie before it's too late.

"I just love Star Wars. With everything I got, I love Star Wars," Fleetwood said.

Here's hoping Fleetwood gets his dying wish. May the force be with him!
