Sometimes, there are cases in life that are, unfortunately, an inevitable result.

The Pixar movie “Up”.

Back in 2009, Pixar had just finished the development of their latest movie, “Up”. However, there was one fan who desperately wanted to see it, and didn’t have a lot of time to. Her name was Colby Curtin, and she was sick with Vascular Cancer, rendering her unable to go to a theater and see it. In response, Pixar sent out an employee directly to her hospital with a copy of the movie, giving Colby the opportunity to see it. Colby passed away later that very night, but her last wish had been fulfilled.

His commitment and goodwill towards others is a standard not many can match.
