After battling leukemia for two years, 4-year-old McKenna May of Haskins was granted a trip to Disney World through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

In order to go, both parents needed to sign the consent form.

McKenna's dad, William May of Toledo, blocked his daughter's trip by refusing to sign the form, stating that he thinks the money should be spent on children in more dire circumstances than his daughter.

When the Sentinel-Tribune in Bowling Green reported the little girl's story it went viral and donations started pouring in, all to help McKenna's dream trip come true. And now more than enough money has been raised to send the 4-year-old to Disney World.

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