So we want you to read this story and then vote, should this DAD be today’s DOUCHEBAG OF THE DAY?! He is denying his daughter to head to Disneyworld courtesy of the Make-A-Wish foundation. Before you jump to conclusions. Read the story and then vote.
Four-year-old McKenna May has been in and out of hospitals countless times since she was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago. Happily, McKenna had her last treatment last month, and was all set to celebrate with a trip to Disney World organized by the Make-A-Wish foundation. That is, until her dad refused to sign the permission slip, effectively prevssenting the charity from fulfilling McKenna’s wish. “I think it should go to kids who only have six months to live,” said William May, a Toledo native. He objects to the use of Make-A-Wish money to fund the trip of a child who is “free and clear” of cancer. But McKenna — who has been forced to endure 15 spinal taps, multiple chemotherapy sessions, and painful treatment complications such as skin burns, vomiting, and hospitalization — won’t be considered “cancer free” for another five years. And, according to regional Make-A-Wish president and CEO Susan McConnell, McKenna more than qualifies for the Disney trip given all she’s been through in the last two years. “What I really feel bad about is she is stuck in the middle,” said McConnell.
