Saddest Story Ever

Associated Press - June 19, 2009 11:34 AM ET
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A 10-year-old California girl has died after getting her last wish: to see the movie "Up."

Colby Curtin of Huntington Beach had advanced vascular cancer and couldn't watch the Disney-Pixar movie in a theater. Her mother says Colby desperately wanted to see the animated film about a man who flies off in his house to fulfill a dream after his wife's death.

A friend managed to contact Pixar, and on June 10 a company employee arrived with a DVD copy at Colby's house. Colby's mother says she asked her daughter if she could hang on until it arrived. The girl said she was ready to die but added: "I'm going to wait for the movie." By then, Colby couldn't open her eyes but her mother described the scenes.
Colby died that night.
