A young woman with a terminal illness had her dream come true by attending Sunday's World Series game.

Lindsay Ripley, 23, of Lee's Summit, Mo., was diagnosed with cancer four years ago and is not expected to live much longer.

Ripley has a tumor on her brain stem, another tumor in her stomach and six tumors on her spine.

Some friends started a website about a week ago that shows Lindsay's "bucket list."

A company in Omaha saw the website and sent her tickets to Sunday's World Series game in St. Louis. Her dad and two friends went along with her.

As an added bonus, the St. Louis Cardinals arranged for her to meet Yadier Molina before the game.

Ripley also gets to see Monday night's World Series game thanks to some friends who purchased tickets for her.
