    Dear Pete, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your rant today. As a disabled woman with cancer who needs to use a walker to get around I was never so ashamed to be me as I was at Disney in 2012. I have never have had so many people treat me like a burden on society. From people kicking my walker out of thier way while I was stopped to catch my breath, to getting knocked around by a family who needed to get thier orders in at the bakery before I could get to the line. However the worst was while waiting for the main street electrical parade when a family walked in front of us and stood there in front of me. My walker is one with a seat so I can rest when I need to, so I was sitting down waiting for the parade to start. I had asked then if they could move so I could see as well, and the man said to me It’s not my problem you’re too lazy to stand up. My husband then explained that I was sitting on my walker and I am sick and cant stand up. The woman then turned around and said that her kids wanted to see the parade too, and that she was a nurse and didn’t see anything wrong with me, so her small children deserved to see the parade more than a lazy b*#@* who could just stand and watch the parade like any other normal adult. Well we left. I couldn’t stop crying, and spent that night and the next day alone in our hotel room, while my husband took our daughter to epcot. At home here, I am never treated that way! These people not only ruined my trip but my 7 year olds too. I read lots of the comments on the blogs, and was just stunned by the amount of discrimination there really is toward people with disabilities. I didn’t ask to get cancer, just like people born with disabilities didn’t ask to be born that way. It’s a burden we carry every day. I wish I could walk, run, work..so what if the three of us didn’t have to wait as long as others, be thankful that is not you that gets trampled, or pushed or shoved out of the way. It took my family a while to save for that trip, to give our daughter a good memory of her mom, not to remember all the bad times, and to have people treat me that way just made me feel worse for her. Sorry to be so long winded, but I think people need to be more compassionate, just because someone doesn’t look sick doesn’t mean they’re not. And every body should be able to get a little Disney in thier lives, not just the healthy ones!
