Blue Butterflies, Miracles, Real-Goal Setting Strategies for Kids and Other Learning Opportunities
By Kevin Stoda
In preparation for my Junior High classes this week, I came across a DVD called THE BLUE BUTTERFLY (2004).
As I watched the first minutes of the film, I could not believe that the tale was even vaguely based upon a true story, but I was wrong. Apparently, the film is, indeed, based on the life of a the Quebec-born, David Marenger, who at the age of six was diagnosed with cancer and given only a few months to live.
In 1988, MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION offered to grant the young David Marenger a final wish.
