Wayne Baird, 62, a native of Upper Darby who is currently battling cancer, had his dream come true when he attended Super Bowl LII, according to a report in Sports Illustrated.
Baird, a resident of Newark, Del., is a lifelong Eagles fan who is undergoing treatment for mantle cell lymphoma, a rare form of cancer.
One of Baird’s daughters contacted the Dream Foundation, a national dream-granting organization for terminally ill adults and told them her dad “loves all things Philly,” and that it is his dream to watch the Eagles win the Super Bowl.
After the Eagles won the NFC Championship, a representative of the Eagles presented Baird and his wife, Linda, with two tickets to fly to Minnesota and watch the Eagles in the Super Bowl.
