You’re the father of a four-year old who has been battling cancer. A trip sponsored by Make A Wish has already been postponed twice because of your daughter McKenna’s leukemia treatment.
But they’re working. The cancer is in remission.
Now, do you accept the trip or do you pass it up because there are now kids worse off than your daughter who could use a trip to Disney World?
In Toledo, Ohio, this is the scenario that William May faced and he’s made his choice:
“Spend the money on a child who this might be their last memory,” May said. “Kids who are only going to live a year or six months.”
It’s complicated. May and the girl’s mother never married and don’t live together. The Make A Wish rules require both parents to sign off on the trip.
The rest of the family has been raising money to take the girl on the trip she was promised. They haven’t told her that dad put the kibosh on it.
