Over the weekend, "Early Show" co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez learned that Susan "Super Susie" Mann has died at age 78.

Mann was diagnosed last year with terminal intestinal cancer. However, instead of submitting to chemotherapy, she decided to spend her last months with her family, doing adventurous things she'd always wanted to do. "The Early Show" followed Mann's adventures. We were there as Mann went hang gliding, sky diving, swimming with dolphins, riding all-terrain vehicles and flew high above the Grand Canyon in a helicopter.

She planned to go dog sledding next. However, Rodriguez, who got to know Mann through her adventures, said on the broadcast, her family won't have any regrets because Mann got to do everything on her list and then some.
