78-year-old man with terminal cancer skydives

Hospice Skydiving wish comes true.

A  78-year-old man with terminal cancer checked the latest item off his bucket list when he went skydiving on Friday.

Marshall Sussin, who has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, is fulfilling his lifelong dreams with the help of Bridgeway Hospice. 

His bucket list included riding in a Mazeratti, skydiving and hopping on a roller coaster. He's now two-thirds of the way through his list after Friday's adventure.

A limousine picked up Sussin and his wife to take them to the skydiving event, which was organized by Bridgeway social worker Karolina  deMaciejowska with assistance from the "Wish of a Lifetime" organization. 

Along with his wife, Sussin's children were there to celebrate.

Sussin will complete his bucket list next week when he rides a roller coaster with Tina Culpepper.
