Colby Curtin is a 10-year-old with vascular cancer and a grim diagnosis. She had seen the trailer for the movie ‘Up’ and badly wanted to see it, but was too sick. But thanks to Pixar, her home couch became the theatre when she got a personal viewing of the movie.

When friends of Colby Curtin frantically called to Pixar, hoping to fulfill her final wish, the company responded, sending an employee on a plane with a DVD copy of ‘Up’ to her house. What a great thing for Pixar to do, and what a great movie to lift ‘Up’ spirits.
