A dying man’s wish to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be coming true, thanks to fire departments and medics in the US.

Ron Villemaire has stage 4 colon cancer and is being cared for in a hospice in Bedford, New Hampshire, and is unable to get to a theatre and sit in a seat for the new Star Wars flick.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, his daughter made a public plea to ensure he gets to see The Last Jedi, with the Bedford and New Boston fire departments saying they’ll take him by ambulance to a theatre on Saturday and transfer him to a hospital bed.
