Terminally ill teen wishes to surf with 'surfing dog'

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 24, 2014

Terminally ill teen Caleb Acosta had one wish: to surf with "Ricochet," a highly receptive dog who surfs with individuals with disabilities. The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted his request, flying Acosta from Florida to Del Mar's dog beach in San Diego, Calif.

"I started riding the wave and all of the pain [in my spine] left and it was so fun," wheelchair bound Acosta told Fox 5.

Acosta, 15, was diagnosed last summer with stage 4 brain cancer.
