Disney has officially reached out to a terminally ill fan who started a campaign to see Avengers: Endgame before the hit flick is released.
The fan, Alexander, went viral because he made “Dying Before April: My Endgame,” a campaign on Reddit because he wants to be able to see Avengers: Endgame, but will likely pass away before April. Many fans tagged directors Joe and Anthony Russo in the post and used #Avengers4Alexander on social media channels.

According to the post, Alexander has liver cancer, mouth cancer, and bone marrow failure because he inherited fancomi anemia, a rare genetic disease that severely affects the production of bone marrow.
“I’m not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story. Just a normal guy. I’m 33, lost my sister three years ago to the same rare genetic disease it turns out I have too. I’ll leave behind a devoted girlfriend and an adopted greyhound.”
Alexander has just revealed that Disney has actually responded, and they’re looking into options to help him be able to view the film.
Disney have reached out and we're discussing options. Thank you all so much. This is everything I could have hoped for!
