Terminally Ill Man Fulfills Dying Wish in Atlantic City Casino
If there's a will, there's a way.
71-year-old New Jersey native John Muddy is suffering from a rare form of non-treatable bladder cancer. And with his life coming close to an end, he had one last wish: to drink a cold beer and play a few more hands of blackjack at his favorite casino in Atlantic City.
According to WCAU-TV, Muddy visited Bally's Atlantic City on Tuesday with help from his hospice caretakers and health care providers, where he later won a few hundred dollars on the casino floor.
His niece, Kelly, says her uncle just didn't want to be in the hospital anymore.
