DIAF, Bad Dad.

Something tells me this kid is going to get her dream trip after all, and it'll be even better than it would have been under the original plan.

Something also tells me that Mom had a good reason for wanting to keep that sh*theel away from their daughter, although I'm generally in favor of fathers being treated equally with regard to child custody.

It's not earmarked specifically for terminally ill children. Make A Wish wants to send her. He just doesn't want his ex-wife and daughter to go on a nice vacation together. Despite the 2 yrs his daughter spent struggling to overcome her cancer. What a jacka$$!

Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, said that McKenna clearly qualifies for a wish since she has gone through so much in her two-year struggle to beat leukemia, the newspaper reported.


May was just granted visitation earlier this year, according to the Sentinel-Tribune.



My daughter has leukemia and you're preventing me from being there with her? You are a horrible person, even if you're her mother.

silverjets: Anyone blaming the father stop to think about how much crap the ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law put this guy through when his daughter had leukemia to make him go to this level? Anyone?

Yeah he shouldn't put the kid in the middle but I'm willing to be he wasn't the first one to do so.


Valid point. If he's only recently had visitation rights restored, doesn't that mean that the ex wife and mother-in-law denied him access to his sick daughter?
The article phrases it as though the whole "it ticked me off" were his excuse for rejecting the trip, rather than someone asking him a leading question...

It may sound indifferent and/or cold, but saying that MAW should be used for dying kids, not kids that got better, is only dickish first hand, rather than realizing that hey, the kid got better, life is their frickin' reward. The whole point of MAW is to let kids do things they may never get the chance to do. This girl, who's only 4, obviously is going to have a lifetime of chances to go to Disneyland/world... That seems to be the real point the father was making.

I'm not saying he should be absolved for the whole thing... more that he should be the one to come up w/the cash, and he should take his daughter to Disneyland to celebrate her recovery, rather than just stand on a principle that also spites his exes.

Bu-bu-but ex-wives NEVER do anything wrong. They'd never weaponize their terminally ill children on piggyback on their children's misfortune for personal gain.

This kid makes me want to take her to Disneyland to live forever. She can become Mickey's ward. Obviously neither of her real families is worthy of reproduction.


Agreed.
The proper action by decent parents should have been:
1. Make-A-Wish tells parents the kid won a trip to Disney World
2. Parents do not tell the child or anyone else about this yet (important part!)
3. If either of the parents don't think it's a good idea, then it doesn't happen
4. Don't run to the media or the public about things that are none of their business

I am a divorced Dad who has 50/50 custody of his two children, only after walking through fire for a year-and-a-half to get it.

She filed for divorce, didn't tell me or the kids, and the next day took them on a two-week vacation that I couldn't afford to share in because I was the only one with a job. She told me about having filed the day after they returned, then asked me to help her break the news to the kids. I despise my ex-wife for the mischief she caused, simply out of spite, during the divorce

But, you know what? My kids have no idea how much I loathe their mother, and as far as I can tell, she rarely says a bad word about me to them. It's simply a line neither of us will cross.

TFA doesn't elaborate why Mom fought this guy so hard regarding visitation. Maybe she had her reasons; maybe she's a biatch. Doesn't matter. He's only truly hurting his daughter. Maybe he believes with all his heart that his ex and her mother are scamming a charity to get a free trip to Disney for themselves. Doesn't matter.

I don't know this guy. He may be the world's biggest prick, or he may have convinced himself this was the only honest thing to do. Doesn't matter. He's wrong.

My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

Methinks you missed the point. She's not considered "cancer-free" for five years, and you don't have to be on death's door to get a wish in the first place. So she's just as worthy of getting this trip as another child would be, and with what we know of the backstory with the parents, it's very likely the father put the kibosh on this to get back at his ex-wife, which has nothing to do with the child.

I have a feeling this guy is 100% douche --- however I do have issues with mom thinking visitation is a privilege. We don't know all the facts. When a custodial parent think visitation rather the right of the child and non-custodial parent this can create an imbalance that is harmful to the child.

What if he offered to pay for Disney and they refuse or deny his ability? What if he wants to take her and they refused? What if he is worried that they won't comeback (reporters are known for not stating things)? What if this trip interferes with his schedule time?

Visitation is a right -- however in some cases people do need to earn the right back.

You sound not divorced.
Courts determine every other weekend, every other year for Christmas break, things like that all of the time. It doesn't mean that the parent with primary custody is going to be at all cooperative about it, and if they aren't that the judge is going to do anything about it once you do get a hearing (which takes a good year or better in some jurisdictions) other than make the primary caregiver promise to start playing nice or they might have to come back and promise again.

The Hawaii trip thing I posted about upthread is a good example. Not shiat I could do about it, I was 5000 miles away from a court with jurisdiction at the time, there would be no way to get a hearing in time to make the trip, and if mom won't drive her to the airport or let grandma come pick her up, there isn't shiat you can do about it, and some custodial parents use that to their advantage.

Pardon me, but it was the POS father who deliberately decided to be a dick. This article makes that VERY clear. Excerpts:

But Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, said that McKenna clearly qualifies for a wish since she has gone through so much in her two-year struggle to beat leukemia.

"The doctors are the ones who determine if she is qualified," McConnell explained.

McConnell said it is unfortunate that the family yanked their request for a wish since the father wouldn't sign off.

"She's been through a lot," she said of McKenna. "What I really feel bad about is she is stuck in the middle."

The mother and grandmother have no doubt that McKenna deserves the Make-A-Wish trip. She was diagnosed with leukemia in April 2010 and had her last treatment last month. During that time, she had 15 spinal taps to make sure the cancer hadn't spread, multiple chemotherapy treatments, skin burns and vomiting from the chemo, and steroid injections that compromised her immune system. She was hospitalized four times due to high fevers. She won't be ruled "cancer free" until five years after her last treatment.

"I'm just angry after all she went through," Hughes said.

McKenna's father went to very few treatments and doctor's appointments, and was just granted visitation privileges earlier this year, the grandmother said.

Helppie said she is "outraged" that McKenna's father wouldn't sign off for the Disney trip.
The father, however, blames McKenna's mother and grandmother for keeping him from seeing his daughter.

"I wasn't allowed to be involved," he said. "It ticked me off."

But May said his refusal to sign off on the trip is not related to his anger at McKenna's mother and grandmother.

"It has nothing to do with that," he said.

However, Helppie and Hughes question his motives.

"He has made it such an ugly fiasco. It's not about him - it's about McKenna," Helppie said. "But he's doing this to get back."


His daughter has gone through hell, and all he cares about is getting back at her mother. He deserves all the hate he's receiving right now. What a jerk.

Another way to look at it is that the mother hates the father so much, that she would rather let the trip get canceled than have him along to celebrate together.

Yeah he shouldn't put the kid in the middle but I'm willing to be he wasn't the first one to do so.

yeah... I am trying to imagine myself in a similar situation. If I wanted to be a good father, and see my kids, and had a ex that wouldn't let me, I would be crushed. I would see my ability to sign off on this trip as the only card I have to play, and I would play it. Let me go along with my little girl or the trip is off.

That however is a very clear cut little fantasy and we have no idea what either of these parents have been doing for the last 5 years.

If you wanted to be a good father, you wouldn't play that card. A real father would fight the battle in court and not by disappointing and hurting their child. Children remember these things and they do start creating resentment. I never have been a child of divorce but a few of my friends have. One friend has no contact with his father, even as a 30-something adult with a child of his own. His father is really a decent man (I've had the pleasure to meet him) but just got into an ugly legal battle with the ex wife and he pulled some of the same stuff you were talking about.

The ex-wife, my friend's mother, never spoke bad about his father to him. It was just the 'well if I can't see my son this weekend, then I refuse to pay half the costs of summer camp' and stuff like that. It built a resentment in my friend up to a point he refuses to speak with his father. Also, my friend's young son has never met (and as far as I have been told) and will never meet his grandfather. In fact, at a funeral that I, my friend, and his father attended, my friend told his father that he w ...


That seems a bit different to me. From what I can gather this guy has been kept away, and likely will be kept away his entire life. Nothing to loose by playing the card, a wonderful trip with the daughter to gain. seems fine to me. You should be looking at the people who forced him into a corner like that, with only 1 option left.

buzzcut73: My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

/This guy is a douche
//END RANT


Thanks for the story, made me feel like I am not alone.

I just got re-married after being divorced eight years. My X said that it was fine if I brought my two children to the wedding (across the country.) I buy the tickets. A couple weeks before, she says they aren't going, I'm not allowed to talk to them until after the wedding. My daughters bday was the following week and she wouldn't let me see her because she was worried I would talk about going to the wedding. Now back from the wedding, my son's bday is today, I have tried to arrange a time to see him, to have them up this weekend or next, no response.

Yes, I can get a lawyer involved, again, and I will. I have gone through this many times and have had very limited success. Male, non custodial parents, do not have equal footing.

It may sound indifferent and/or cold, but saying that MAW should be used for dying kids, not kids that got better, is only dickish first hand, rather than realizing that hey, the kid got better, life is their frickin' reward. The whole point of MAW is to let kids do things they may never get the chance to do. This girl, who's only 4, obviously is going to have a lifetime of chances to go to Disneyland/world... That seems to be the real point the father was making.


Funny thing about this: MAW doesn't agree with you or the father. So your point, and his point, is that MAW should only be available for kids who are terminally ill or near it. MAW says you and he are both wrong and they offer wishes to children who have gotten better.

Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, said that McKenna clearly qualifies for a wish since she has gone through so much in her two-year struggle to beat leukemia, the newspaper reported.

McConnell said it is unfortunate that the family yanked their request for a wish since the father wouldn't sign off. "She's been through a lot," she said of McKenna. "What I really feel bad about is she is stuck in the middle."

Good for him. She only want his involvement when it suits her, but I'm sure she didn't mind when he emptied his wallet for leukemia and child support. If I was him - stuck with her - and I had even an inkling that her motives for that trip were not 100% for the daughter's good time and that it was something the mom was pushing/suggesting/wishing for herself, I'd nix it also. Unless we're in his shoes and we don't know the whole story, it's real easy to paint the victim/baby killer aspect here.

Maybe mom is a sheisty biatch? Maybe, ahem, he's right about dying kids/kids that are well? Whatever. Bottom line is it should be a private, family (or what's left of it) matter, not something you start parading about the news. ATTENTION! Look how EVIL this man is!

So once again, good for him, for NOT taking a handout. God forbid you don't get a blue ribbon for leukemia and gold bricks paved out your front door. Better get used to living the rest of your life without free vacation handouts, like the rest of us do. You'll live. (get it? hahahaha)

Methinks you missed the point. She's not considered "cancer-free" for five years, and you don't have to be on death's door to get a wish in the first place. So she's just as worthy of getting this trip as another child would be, and with what we know of the backstory with the parents, it's very likely the father put the kibosh on this to get back at his ex-wife, which has nothing to do with the child.




Wrong.
The girl isn't dying, therefore the father, despite being a dick, is correct. That's what make-a-wish is for

Boy, my thought processes must be the odd one here. Everyone's so quick to believe this heavily biased piece. Has no one thought that perhaps the father was painted that way intentionally due to the emotional knee-jerk reactions people have when they see the words "four year old girl" and "cancer" in proximity? Did anyone stop to think he's trying to teach his daughter that just because she's qualified, doesn't mean she SHOULD take it when it could go to other children who weren't lucky enough to experience remission? Or is the "if you can get it, take it, whether you need it or not" attitude so deeply ingrained in the American psyche that this thought does not occur to us? I mean, even if the father's motivations were petty and spiteful, was it not petty and spiteful for a mother and grandmother to keep a father from his dying daughter, then run to the media to whine and beg for money rather than using this as a teaching moment to show your daughter there are more important things in life than Mickey Mouse, and that she could be doing something awesome for another little boy or girl who is less fortunate that her?

My nephew got leukemia when he was two. He fought it for years, going through hell you can't imagine. My sister was a hero and was there for him every step of the way, no thanks to her worthless husband. In the midst of all this, the Make-a-Wish foundation granted him a wish. Before he could fulfill it though, he managed to battle his cancer into remission.

Are you really trying to say that the foundation should have taken his wish back? I'm pleased to say that they did no such thing, and he got to take his mom and brothers on a cruise.

From the linked article:
"Though Make-A-Wish requires signatures from both parents, there are a few exceptions, such as if a parent is unknown or cannot be found. In some cases, judges have intervened and granted authority.
Wood County Probate and Juvenile Judge Dave Woessner said his court would consider issuing an order for the parental signature, but McKenna's mom and grandma were worried that even that order wouldn't be enough."

Instead of trying for a court order they took it to the newspaper, is it possible they know they will get way more than $3,500 by using the daughter as a pawn?

Some friends of friends had a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney with their daughter about a year and a half ago -- in her case, her illness was terminal, but from what they said it was clear that these trips were for any kid who'd been through a grueling, dangerous, long-term illness -- they're as much for the whole family as for the kid, it's about giving them a chance to relax and just enjoy themselves together for a week without having to juggle all the six thousand different things that have to be juggled when you're trying to run a household and hold down a job while caring for a seriously ill child. Even if this family does fund their own trip to Disney, they likely won't get the perks that Make-A-Wish families do, and that sucks. Whatever issues the dad has with the mother and grandmother, he's punishing his daughter for them. How on earth he thinks this is good long-term approach, I can't imagine, unless he just doesn't give a rat's ass about his kid. I wonder if the original refusal was a ploy to get them to include him in the trip?

Sad thing is she may not have beaten cancer. She is nowhere near in the clear at this early stage.

He simply asserted she was as an excuse to ruin something the kid deserved. I don't know how someone denies a child who suffered like that anything. But your own daughter? It's inhuman. And sadly I see this self centered me me me attitude a lot. This father is so focused on his grievance that he doesn't worry about how it affects others. And his grievance is likely manufactured to deflect his own responsibility.

minoridiot: I wonder if Dad would be willing to pay for the trip out of pocket if he was allowed to take her to Disney World.


That would require him to actually care about her, unless he was doing it to piss off his ex

But yet anybody can make more humans.....and keep making them no matter how bad they treat them or screw them up.

This douchebag in this story is probably out sewing seeds right now.

leevis: We need a "douchebag" tag. Just make sure there are limits so it isn't overused in the politics tab.


All the tags in the politics tab should just automatically default to "douchebag" just to save time. Plus, it's more honest this way.

So they've pulled their family's request with Make-A-Wish and are placing collection jars around the community to raise the needed $3,500 to fund the trip on their own

So, the money is already there. Why do they need Make a Wish and Father Jerk to sign off on it? Pack up the Aerostar and head down to Mouseland.

labman: He's a dick.

It doesn't cost 3500 to visit Disney, though. (unless you live overseas). Hopefully Disney will step in for the PR and give them a free trip.


From experience:

Four roundtrip tickets from Chicago = $1500
Three nights at Animal Kingdom = $1250
Four three-day parkhoppers = $1200
Four days of food = $600
Four days of buying useless crap = $600

I know I spent over 5 g's back three years ago and I am doing it again this Christmas.

Did you read the part where he admitted doing it because he was, in his words, "pissed off"?

The Make-A-Wish foundation determined that the kid qualified, after she endured two years of extremely painful medical tests and procedures related to her leukemia. It's not up to the sire to make that call, and by his own admission, he did it out of revenge.

If it's not up to him to make that call, how did he make that call?

If this was an article about a little girl who died never receiving her wish because this girl got to go to Disneyworld or wherever even though she was in remission the masses would be calling for her house to be burned down.


since you got some responses 4/10

/over $3500 I doubt it is a zero sum game with make a wish.

Methinks you missed the point. She's not considered "cancer-free" for five years, and you don't have to be on death's door to get a wish in the first place. So she's just as worthy of getting this trip as another child would be, and with what we know of the backstory with the parents, it's very likely the father put the kibosh on this to get back at his ex-wife, which has nothing to do with the child.


Seriously, I hope they kill him. What a rotten sonofabiatch.
