No offense, dude... you can say that again in another 7 or so months. ; )
This isn`t about "love and marriage". It`s about a little girl who wants to accomplish a dream she knows she`ll never live to see.
Many little girls want to grow up, find someone that loves them, and get married. This little girl will die before then. It is a matter of love...FAMILY love, not sexual or even intimate necessarily, but a love to make this young girl happy before she passes on.
She`s got very little time left, so you do what she wants NO MATTER WHAT IT IS. I have a 16 month old little girl and this is very painful to read or watch.
Obviously, the parents are granting their daughter`s dying wish with a little make-believe wedding to make a dream of hers come true since she only has 4 weeks left to live.
Some little girls dream of getting married; there`s nothing wrong with being small and having fun little fantasies--that`s what childhood is all about and it is sad her life will be cut short.
Some of the comments on here are so mean towards a dying 9 year old girl; some people need to have sympathy.
Bek, look at fillemorte`s avatar. You`re arguing with a ghost, that kind of proves her point I think :-)
Wasn`t it actually lupus in one episode?
But all that aside, it`s horrible to see kids die like that before their life even begins. At least she`ll die happy. That must have been gut wrenching for the parents though.
I have a 90% chance of getting lukemia. I have the cells in my blood, but the doctors can`t do anything about it until it turns into cancer. Hopfully when it is found it isn`t to late...
I feel so sorry for the little girl for what she has but happy for her that she is able to have her dream =-]
"I`ve survived cancer three times, rhabdomyiasarcoma, condro-blastic osteosarcoma and most recently a lung metastasis. I`ll tell ya, it`s as hard to see your parents (and loved ones) watch you deal with cancer as it is to deal with cancer yourself. I`m not surprised they agreed to do this. Parents are probably distraught with sadness."I`m glad you`re here with us today. :) I lost a grandfather to lung cancer (and probably my dad soon, he`s been coughing a lot and we don`t know what`s wrong with him. He`s going to the clinic today. He`s been a chainsmoker since he was 12.) and my best friend`s dad was given 6 months to live 10 years ago, and he`s still with us.
I don`t really have a comment this time.
oh well, this is such a sad story though :(
I think that IS the point wombat, its traumatic enough on an adult when they lose a partner. One of these kids is going to die before the other, and the remaining one will be incredibly traumatised. You`re not giving the kids some "magical fairy tale wish come true", you`re exposing them to adult pain and loss in the midst of everything else they`re suffering. If the parents had one iota of sense, I think they would have realised this was a very very cruel thing to do to them.
I`ve also just realised that my previous post may have sounded a little dismissive, so my apologies if it sounded that way, I was merely interested in the terminology. Also, my condolences for the loss of your friend.
I`m actually honestly intrigued as to what people mean by it. Do they simply mean maintaining the attitude of `this cancer will not beat me`, or do they mean `I am going to use every treatment possible to get rid of this thing`?
It`s never Lupus! Gah!
Do they what? Have lupus? You`re a fan of House, you should already know that the answer is "Nope!"
This is probably purely ceremonial, but they didn`t really answer that...
Every little girl dreams of her wedding day, and I think that it`s touching that she is able to have hers. A very sad story, though.
It always scares me that people who are walking around, smiling, and talking can be gone in just a few weeks. Children, too.
But really, it`s lovely that the parents put this together for her.
I was under the impression they met there. They never went into detail as to what the boy had. For all we know he had cancer that`s now in remission or something and he`ll now live a very long and scarred life.
a widower at 7!? jeeze :|
Jan. 31, she married the love of her life. Now, she was 25, but still... It was the one thing that she had told me she wanted before death, was to meet and marry the man she would be the happiest with.
Feb. 9, she died suddenly.
Honestly, I have an easier time thinking that she got her dream wedding, she died one of the happiest people ever.
I don`t see what`s wrong with giving a girl who`s not expected to see her tenth birthday the wedding she always talked about and dreamed about. It`s cute, it`s sweet, and it`s a happy time that her parents can take with them when they are filled with heartbreak and tears when she`s gone.
When I was a little kid, I was in a cult too. :D
Heh, I joke. I was never a little kid.
Of all the stupid, insipid, ass-backward thinking...
What the f*ck is in the water in Texas? Seriously.
Is it REALLY so horrible for a dying 9 year old girl to get to live out her biggest dream? Good for her, man.
So, does the other kid get death benefits? Is the girl`s estate left to him?
