California Girl Gets Dying Wish to See Movie 'Up'. - June 20th 2009, 09:01 PM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're OK.

"The 10-year-old girl desperately wanted to see the new Disney-Pixar movie, "Up." But the cancer-stricken girl was too sick to go to a theater."

It was nice to hear that Pixar/Disney responded so quickly.

GREAT BIG HUG

It's nice to hear that some people live with good intentions. =)

It also makes me realize how much I take advantage of small things like that. I went and saw Up in 3-D and didn't think twice about it.

A friend sent me a link to this article yesterday, actually. Reading the article was very upsetting. It's hard to hear stories like this. It really makes you appreciate your health and the health of your close family and friends.

I read this yesterday! I seriously got teary-eyed.

Good for her though to have her wish come true.

I'm glad she got her wish.. but it doesn't make up for the loss of her life. So sad.

What I thought was pretty lame is that after she watched it, the Disney representative took the DVD back. They couldn’t give the poor dying girl the DVD. I mean I am glad Disney offered the movie, but they couldn’t have given it to her?

I had the exact same thought after I read it. It's nice to see that Disney responded so quickly but, come on.

well it's probably against the copyright law or whatever its called. they can't give someone the DVD before its released because i suppose it could be pirated or whatever.

The girl didn't ask for the DVD anyway, she asked to see the movie. She saw the movie.

That's great Disney did that. That little girl got her wish. I'm surprised it wasn't connected to the make a wish foundation.


We were made to be courageous.

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think itís more than you can take
But you're stronger, stronger than you know
Donít you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

make a wish foundation are amazing. i've been lucky enough to get loads of stuff from them, and it really does make a difference.

anyways, i agree.. she got to see the movie and thats all that matters really :]

Pretty little white girl syndrome..

But what is the point in giving her the DVD? Even if they didn't know exactly when she'd die, they could've estimated it. She saw the movie, great, but there's no reason in letting her keep it even if she was still alive after seeing it.

Aww, that was sad. I cried reading the article. I'm happy that the girl got to see the movie but I'm sad that she died that night. I think she really did wait to see the movie.

i don't really think thats so. i think they'd have done it regardless. companies regularly do stuff like this..

That's really sweet, I got tears in my eyes reading it.

It's nice to see things like this, it makes me hopeful.
