Leave it to Beyonce to boost a business with a single line. All hail the Queen B.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

If this sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because it was the plot of the 2009 movie Fanboys. But this time, it’s real life. One Star Wars fan is hoping to see Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens before it’s actual release date, because he doesn’t know if he’ll make it to the release date. 32-year-old Daniel Fleetwood “is suffering from a connective tissue cancer called spindle cell sarcoma” and was given only two months to live back in July. Daniel says he’s been a Star Wars fan since he was 8 or 9, and as he told Houston’s KPRC-TV, “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.” Luckily, Daniel has got some major Force power on his side.
