Terminally ill Cleveland Browns fan gets his Super Bowl wish

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The top item on Ed Demyan’s bucket list was seeing a Super Bowl in person — ideally with the Cleveland Browns playing.

Time is not on his side. Demyan, 47, was told in May he had Stage 3 pancreatic cancer. Despite chemotherapy and radiation treatment, it spread to his bones by November.

But the Browns didn’t fumble their chance. With their help and with the Dream Foundation, the nation’s first and oldest wish-granting organization for adults, Demyan will be at Super Bowl XLV on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.
