When a 41-year old cancer patient named Dan was told he only had a few weeks left to live, he wished he could see the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness before he died.  Friends and family took to Reddit, a social website, to share his story and wish.

Star Trek Into Darkness is not scheduled for release until May of this year. If you are a fan of J.J. Abrams like I am you know that this guy is out of his mind if he thinks the most secretive director and producer in the world is going to let anyone see this movie early. Well, that is what I thought.

Dan’s wife says the director of Star Trek, J.J. Abrams called her to arrange a screening of the film.  On New Year’s Eve, Dan’s wife announced that they were able to view the movie and they loved it!    I just really think it's awesome that J.J. Abrams would be kind enough to make this wish come true.
