Star Wars super fan Daniel Fleetwood, like millions of other fans across the globe, was stoked about the new Star Wars movie coming out at the end of the year. Even though he was ill, his excitement was growing. Fleetwood was diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma, a very rare form of cancer. But just one month later he was given two months to live.
