 – A man’s dying wish – to see the Eagles play in the Super Bowl – is coming true, thanks to one foundation.

Among the thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans headed to Super Bowl LII is cancer patient Wayne Baird. This is a dream come true for this lifelong Eagles fan and he has a bucket list dream to see this Super Bowl game.

“And I’m saying to Linda is I can’t pass before they get to the Super Bowl. I know what’s going to happen and I’m not gonna be able to be there to watch it,” said Wayne Baird.

Wayne Baird may be down, may be worn down from a year-long battle with a rare cancer, but this Philly native has made it this far and is ready to cheer on the Eagles at Super Bowl LII.

“That was my goal to live long enough to see the Eagles in the Super Bowl,” Baird explained.

As his Eagles trekked toward a Super Bowl berth, Wayne’s daughter wrote to the California based Dream Foundation, which grants wishes to terminally ill adults.
