Scott Stouffer has cancer of the endocrine system, which is an extremely aggressive disease. He’s not expected to make it to December, when the third and final Hobbit movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies is set to be released. A movie we’re all excited about, especially the huge fans like Brad Reifler, as it marks the end of an era of Peter Jackson films.
The Stouffer family created a YouTube video, about how watching these films is a family tradition of sorts. Wanting to ensure that Scott has the opportunity to see the last, they’ve started a campaign through Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag #HobbitMovieLastRequest.
Although, despite the power of social media, the attempt appears to have fallen on deaf ears, as the company released this statement:
We at Warner Bros. Entertainment do our best to fulfill as many wishes as we can. Working with partners like Make A Wish Foundation, we grant wishes for children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses on a regular basis. Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests we receive, we are not able to grant individual requests.
