Dad denies sick daughter Disney trip

An Ohioan says he blocked his 4-year-old daughter's Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World because he doesn't believe donations to the wish-granting organization should be spent on a child who appears clear of illness after two years of cancer treatments.

The Sentinel-Tribune in Bowling Green reports McKenna May of Haskins completed treatment for leukemia but couldn't go to Disney because both parents had to agree.

William May of Toledo says he thinks trips should go to sick children in more dire circumstances than his daughter.

A Make-A-Wish official says the girl's treatment struggles qualified her for a wish.

Whitney Hughes says she's collecting donations at local businesses in hopes of still getting her daughter to Disney World.

Anyone wanting to donate to McKenna's trip may send donations to 5/3 Bank, 275 South Main Street, Bowling Green, Ohio 43402.
(419) 354-9531 to the benefit account for McKenna May.

McKenna's parents never married. Her grandmother says the father only recently received visitation privileges with the girl.
