When Erin Birch, a 38-year-old St. Ann woman fighting cervical cancer, came down with a high fever earlier this week, she was rushed to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
The trip to the infirmary did allow Birch, through Stella's Wish Foundation, to have her dream-come-true meeting with professional wrestler and actor Kevin Nash, king of the Jackknife Powerbomb.
The 53-year-old Nash, who has been wrestling for more than 20 years, has appeared mostly under the nicknames "Big Sexy" and "Diesel," and was famous for his "Jackknife Powerbomb" move.
He also has appeared in a handful of television shows and movies, including the role of Tarzan in "Magic Mike."
The best news, however, was that Birch was discharged Tuesday.
