A Girl’s Wish to See ‘Up’

This is quite a touching news story.

Colby Curtin, a 10-year-old with a rare form of cancer, was staying alive for one thing – a movie. From the minute Colby saw the previews to the Disney-Pixar movie Up, she was desperate to see it. Colby had been diagnosed with vascular cancer about three years ago, said her mother, Lisa Curtin, and at the beginning of this month it became apparent that she would die soon and was too ill to be moved to a theater to see the film.

We’ve posted a new video on YouTube. We will probably post an even-better-quality version on MobileMe at some point, but this video is pretty amazing. Be sure to click through to see the HD version if you can!

To see the HD version, click on this link or the YouTube logo, and then when you get to the YouTube page, click on the HD button in the bottom right. It’s worth it.

UPDATE: There’s another version on our MobileMe gallery. You may have better luck with that one. You can also download a copy, if you wish.
