I was reading this and it brought tears to my eyes. Colby Curtain,10, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and her wish was to see the new Pixar movie "UP." According to the article they put in a request for her to get a wheelchair so they could take her to the movies but that never came through. A friend of the family kept calling Pixar until they got through. When they heard the story they sent someone out to the little girls house with a DVD copy and a basket of toys. Sadly little Colby passed away just seven hours after watching the movie.

Wow this just really made me sad. Even though this is a horrible thing to happen to such a young child, I am glad she got her final wish to see "Up." Now it makes me want to go see it honestly. I wish all the best to her family.

Wow that is very sad, but it is great that Pixar took the time out of their busy day to help someone in need.

Thanks for finding, and sharing that story.

Reminds me of one of my favorite charities, the "Make A Wish" Foundation.

Wow that is very sad to read...but it was the best thing I've read today. It's good to hear there's good people left in the world, even inside giant corporations like Pixar. I give Pixar two thumbs up for helping this little girl out with her final wish. May she rest in peace.

Poor little angel...does my heart MUCH good today to hear that there are still caring people and companies out there!
I hope it gave her joy and when I watch it,I shall send a prayer up in her honor.
Thanks for sharing such a lovely story!

Lovely story, unfortunately, the cnic in me just sees a company capitalizing on some relatively cheap publicity.

I saw the same thing on tv.

I think it was truly great for them to do that.

I will now feel good about taking my niece to the next Pixar movie.

I think it is a shinning example that SHOULD be repeated as often as needed.

More than making a very ill child's last wish, it show's some corporation CAN be more than all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

I was at the movies earlier today deciding if I wanted to watch one but couldnt find any I thought would be good. I did see this movie on the list but I didnt know what it was until I read this article. I think tomorrow I will check it out. I looked it up online and it looks like a cute feel good movie. I need one of those lately. I too will say a little prayer for her while I watch.
As for Pixar, what a wonderful thing they did for someone!

I dont see it that way at all. It was her wish and a small one at that really. She just wanted to see a movie. I dont think it had anything to do with gaining publicity. There are people and companies out there who are good hearted and it isnt about money or getting attention.

I'm a bit teary as well.

I'm glad she got her wish though. Bless her heart.

Lucas did the same for a dying cancer child in our PICU.

We got to see Phantom Menace a month before its theatre release. Lucas sent a copy by armed courier along with a THX technician to set up the screen and surround sound for the child and nurses to watch in the patients room.

Moved me to tears that someone would do this.

A beautiful gesture and a sweet movie.

The story line of the movie is so poignant/ironic to the OP: Someone dies and someone else thinks their life is over...but it's not.

Wow that is awesome! I saw that movie 14 times in the theater


I was reading another link about the person they sent to the house to screen the movie with the family and they said he was teary eyed the whole time. I would have been too. Heck I am now thinking about it. It's always nice to see someone do something in a selfless manner to someone they dont even know. It makes me smile to see someone do something for another when they dont even know them. Granting a dying persons wish is just.... well I have no words how to describe how that would make me feel if I did that. In short it's amazing.

Ironic that she saw "UP" and now is, well, not so up. Pixar really doesn't have a choice in showing the movie or not, considering the negative publicity that would result otherwise.

I really dont think this has anything to do with publicity. Why cant someone just do something out of the kindness of their heart for another human being? The poor girl was dying and her wish was to see this movie and they made it come true that's all it is.

Having been involved in pediatric care for almost 15+ years now I can tell you that most simply do it and never point it out otherwise. Nor do the agencies bust the chops of those who do not because you never know when you might need them.

As far as I know Lucas nor his company ever mentioned this.

My heart hurts at this.
I don't want to think about how her parents must feel.
I know if I were them it would tear me apart inside out.
