Terminally-ill child celebrates his bucket list

- A terminally ill boy was all smiles Sunday after receiving a big surprise from Old McMicky’s Farm in Odessa.

Eric Piburn, 9, needs a heart and two new lungs.

His family has been overwhelmed by medical bills and they are raising money to help cover healthcare expenses.

Sadly, Eric is not expected to survive for long and has a bucket list.

On it, he wanted to have a big birthday party and the team at Old McMicky’s Farm arranged to help him do that for free.

He was greeted by superheroes, including Chewbacca and volunteers from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
