The dying girl who wished to see Pixar’s ‘Up’
Colby Curtin got her final wish. 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. So a family friend contacted someone at Pixar to see if they could help. The very next day, Pixar flew in an employee with a bag of “Up” memorabilia and a DVD version of the film. Together he and Colby’s family all watched the movie. The movie features a large plume of balloons released to the sky. Colby died 7 hours later.
