Pixar fulfills dying girl’s wish to see ‘Up’
10-year-old with cancer couldn’t go to theater, studio brought DVD to house...
Pretty sad stuff... Too bad she didn't get to see it with her own eyes."Imagination will often carry
us to worlds that never were.
But without it, we go nowhere."

I could ask whether the movie was that bad, but that would be insensitive to both the movie's greatness and to the girl herself.Don't Reach, Young Blood

What a difficult thing for a 10 year old girl to have to go through, I'm glad she's done with the pain though. I'm glad she got to experience the film in some way though.A Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray Reviewwww.blu-news.com

That's a very sad story.
And it makes me sick to know, that pharmaceutical companies already got some kind of cure against cancer, but won't release it due to pure greed.PSN/XBL: BLINX1234

Very sad story, and personally I find such proofless accusations that anyone would out of greed sit back with a "cure for cancer" and let people die distasteful. I also find it extrodenarly ignorant, there is no such thing as "a cure for cancer", there isn't just "cancer", there are many different cancers which do not all respond to treatments similarly.Toshiba 55" 55HT1U LCD (1080p@24fps) w/Tivo HD, Harmony 880

This thread really is not the place to discuss that though.
Pixar.....you are one incredibly class act guys. What you did for that poor family and the hell they were going through is beyond price.PSN : DaveS1138
