Donations will send Ohio cancer patient to Disney

Flood of donations will help Ohio cancer patient, 4, make trip to Disney after dad denied wish By The Associated Press

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) A 4-year-old cancer patient from Ohio who was denied a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World by her father will get to go after all.

McKenna May's mother and grandmother say so many donations have poured in during the last few days that they will be able to pay for the trip themselves.

The girl's father initially refused to sign off on the Make-A-Wish trip because he said she was in remission. He says he also believes the trips should go to children who are sicker than his daughter.

McKenna lives in Haskins in northwest Ohio. She had the trip postponed twice while she was undergoing treatment for leukemia. Her last treatment was about a month ago.

McKenna's parents never married but both had to sign off on the Make-A-Wish trip.
