    10-year-old with cancer couldn’t go to theater, studio brought DVD to house

    Such a sad story but such a quality move by the Pixar people to have done this for the girl and her family. And to think that the poor girl dies shortly after the movie played.

    Such a sad story. Made me well up and I'm usually an old cynic.

    Oh, dear. I'm such a sentimental type. My eyes "welled up" as well.

    I was relaying this story to someone earlier this evening and I got about half way through and actually choked up a bit. I can't imagine what that Pixar employee must've felt going through all that.

    Makes me want to smile and cry at the same time. Kudos to Pixar - great movie, too.
