    A 5-Year-Old Girl Raised Enough Money To Take Her Father Who Has Terminal Cancer To Disney World

    The local community came together to make sure Ruby could take her dad to Disneyland.

    Last week, Damian Myles found out the cancer he had been fighting for over a year had spread to his liver. Doctors told him it's now terminal.

    His 5-year-old daughter Ruby decided she wanted to take him to Disneyland before he died.

    The owner of The Wellington, a local pub in the Myles family's hometown of Southport, England, teamed up with Part of Your World Princesses to make sure Ruby got her wish.

    An amazing team of Disney princesses surprised Ruby and her family and friends at the pub and told them that the community was sending the family to Disneyland.

    They raised a whopping £4,130 (about $6,935). A businessman in the community donated a large chunk of it because he was so moved by the Myles family's story.

    Mike and Karen Parks, the couple behind Part of Your World Princesses, told local reporters that they put on a lot of parties, but to help Ruby and her family was something special.

    Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella are Ruby's favorite Disney princesses.

    The community is still raising money for the family, with any extra money going to a trust fund for Ruby when she gets older.

    The Wellington in Southport still has collection buckets out for anyone looking to donate to the family.
