(WFLX) - A 4-year-old girl from Ohio won't be making her dream trip to Disney World after all.

That's because her dad decided accepting the "Make-a-Wish" trip would be wrong since she is now free and clear of her illness. "I think it should go to kids who only have six months to live," said William May.

His daughter, McKenna, recently finished up two-years of treatment for leukemia and was granted the trip.

Her mom and grandmother, Whitney Hughes and Lori Helppie, are now collecting donations in hopes of getting her to Disney on their own. They say McKenna deserves to go to Disney after enduring two years of treatment.

Donations to McKenna's trip can be made to 5/3 Bank, 275 South Main St., Bowling Green, Ohio 43402 (419) 354-9531 to the benefit account for McKenna May.
