Daniel Fleetwood, the terminally ill man who became the first fan to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has died at the age of 32.
His wife Ashley Fleetwood shared on Facebook Tuesday that Daniel lost his battle with spindle cell sarcoma, a rare form of connective tissue cancer. In July, he was given two months to live. "Daniel put up an amazing fight to the very end," she wrote. "He is now one with God and with the force. He passed in his sleep and in peace. He will always be my idol and my hero."
Last week, a viral campaign, #ForceforDaniel, asked Disney to allow Daniel to see the anticipated Star Wars film early, since he didn't expect to live until the movie's Dec. 18 release. On Nov. 5, Ashley announced that Daniel's final wish was granted.
John Boyega, one of the film's stars who pushed for Daniel to see the movie, paid tribute to him on Tuesday.
