His daughter had previously purchased Star Wars: Last Jedi tickets believing that he would be getting better and would be well enough to attend. Unfortunately, this did not happen and so she put out a call for help on social media with the hashtag #RonsLastJedi. The answer she received back was overwhelming and heartwarming.
The news is coming! The news is coming! Oh God please let this help us get Star Wars here for my dad! #RonsLastJedi!

The 69-year-old Air Force Veteran received a surprise visit from Darth Vader at his bedside at the facility where he is currently receiving care. “Ron Villemaire,” said Darth Vader. “You have been summoned by the Emperor.”
Villemaire then had first responders escort him to the movie theater. “Our role here is to make sure he is comfortable, and he is able to enjoy this experience,” New Boston Fire Chief Dan Macdonald said.
Once he arrived he was met by a crowd of Star Wars characters and a round of applause.
O’Neil’s Cinemas had donated theater time on the film’s opening weekend to Ron and his family so they could enjoy Star Wars: The Last Jedi together. Kelly O’Neil the theater owner said, “We’re also big Star Wars fans and we could help him. I think any time you can help someone you should.”
Ron Villemaire was thankful to all for such an amazing experience. “I hope God will bless each and every one of them just the way I feel blessed right now. He’s definitely with me right now,” he said. “It’s just unbelievable all these people are here and thank God for Star Wars fans!”
