The hashtag #ForceforDaniel starting trending -- with Daniel himself telling people magazine:
"if I got to see the movie, i might actually die from happiness. Growing up, I would watch the movies over and over and analyze every little detail. I hope I get to see what happens."
Actors Mark Hamill and John Boyega also supported the online campaign -- tweeting out their support to allow the lifelong fan to see the film.
I just read this and am elated for Daniel & his family! Thanks to the powers-that-be for making his dream come true. https://t.co/ImiAdyBxf8

The 31 year old’s wish was granted on November 5th -- Ashley posting thanks to Disney, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm for making his final dreams come true -- with a personal call from director JJ Abrams.
Daniel was able to see an unfinished version of the film just a few days before succumbing to spindle cell sarcoma - a rare form of connective tissue cancer.
Ashley sending out this Facebook message:
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will be released to the public in December 18th.
