BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) – A dying man’s wish to see the new “Star Wars” movie is coming true, thanks to local fire departments and medics.
Ron Villemaire has stage 4 colon cancer and is in hospice care in Bedford, New Hampshire. He’s a huge “Star Wars” fan, but can’t get to a theater and sit in a seat.
After a public plea from his daughter, the Bedford and New Boston fire departments say they’ll take him Saturday by ambulance to a theater and transfer him to a hospital bed. Medics will be on hand during “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
The 69-year-old Villemaire will be joined by family and friends, as well as Darth Vader and storm troopers.
Villemaire is a U.S. Air Force veteran and will be greeted by representatives thanking him for his service.
