Tragically, Neil passed away on Monday at 36 years old, after losing his battle with cancer.

But, before his death, hospice staff had organized a social media campaign to get Mr. Hanvey that advanced viewing. Last week, Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the famed franchise, saw the campaign, and took to Twitter to support the effort, retweeting this post (below):

And, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards also heard about the man's wish, and sent over a special preview version of the film, months before its scheduled December release.

After the Saturday screening, the hospice issued a statement about the heartwarming gesture, and revealed the filmmaker did "all he could" to grant Neil's request:

A year after filing a lawsuit against her former business manager, Shannen Doherty can claim a small victory.

As we previously reported, the Charmed star went as far to say in the legal docs against Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson that if she were still covered by insurance, her cancer could have been caught earlier OR even prevented!!

They reached the settlement at the end of last week, and it's being reported her former management's lawyers were ready to depose the celebrity again in order to find out "how sick she really was."

So so sad.

Although she hasn't spoken out about the lawsuit news, she did share a happier clip to Instagram on Monday:

Jax reveals her scary diagnosis.

Jax captured America's attention on season 14 of American Idol, thanks to her powerful pipes and amazing voice.

But now, the blonde — whose real name is Jaclyn Cole Miskanic — has got our attention for a much scarier reason. On Monday, the singer revealed that she was diagnosed with both thyroid cancer and Hashimoto's disease earlier this year.

The FOX alum explained to NJ 101.5 that she hadn't been feeling too great back in April, when she was slated to do a show at New York's Webster Hall, saying:

"I was going through a lot, traveling a lot, living out of a suitcase. But I was waking up tired a lot, losing my voice and just kind of depressed and in a really dark place. My parents knew something was up because if wasn't normal."

The 20-year-old said in the spring, she felt a lump on her throat while grocery shopping with her parents. However, the New Jersey native didn't think much of it, admitting:

"But I'm like a bro when it comes to going to the the doctor, and I let it go."

But, the songstress' parents begged her to get it checked out, so the gorgeous gal went to urgent care. After the facility gave her an ultrasound and ran some tests, the musician was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, in which the immune system attacks the thyroid.

Sadly, that wasn't all. Doctors also found 18 tumors
