Dad sounds like a vindictive, petty dick. Gosh...

Honestly, after reading the article Jessie posted, it sounds like he just... doesn't want to admit his child is ill and that it very much *could* cut her life short. Still a jerk move, and not fair to the child, but I could somewhat understand not wanting to admit she's sick.

I seriously hope Disney hears about it and is able to make it as special as it would have been as she went through Make-A-Wish, just cause they get so many extras, it's above and beyond.

I think if the dad TRULY has a moral objection and isn't just being a tool he should step up and tell the little girl exactly why she can't take the trip instead of making the mom and grandma lie for him. He is morally outraged but not enough to tell the little girl the truth about it? Yeah I call BS on the moral objection

Poor girl. It sounds to me like the father is being completely unreasonable. She's been through enough already, sucks that she has to be caught in the middle of her parents' fight.

I love how Disney employees got wind of the story and got in touch with the news team to make donations. THAT is what makes Disney an amazing place. they have the most incredible, dedicated Cast Members anywhere

I am so glad! I was pretty confident someone at Disney would step up and help in some way 5 nights at the hotel free! WOOT.......and they also collected over 12k.........IN YOUR FACE DAD! LOL

I want to say one more thing on this issue. GOOD on the mom and gram for not telling the little girl she wasn't going to Disney 'cause daddy wouldn't let her. THAT shows love and concern for the little girls feelings unlike the dad seems to be doing. She'll find out eventually (how can she not in a small town after it being all over the internet as well) but for now, I am happy mom and gram are doing what they can for her feelings
