This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day

Michelle Dunaj, who is dying of leukemia, was Hawaii-bound for one of the last trips of her life. But the TSA in Seattle made it memorable for a different reason:

She called Alaska Airlines ahead of time to request a wheelchair and to ask how her medicines should be separated for the security line.

"I did everything they asked me to do, so I didn't think it would be an issue," she said.

But Dunaj says nothing went right at the security checkpoint. A machine couldn't get a reading on her saline bags, so a TSA agent forced one open, contaminating the fluid she needs to survive. She says agents also made her lift up her shirt and pull back the bandages holding feeding tubes in place. Dunaj needs those tubes because of organ failure. With other passengers staring, Dunaj says she asked for privacy and was turned down.

"They just said that it was fine; the location we were at was fine," she said.

TSA is responding to a request to look into the incident.

Popular YouTuber Eric McLean has posted 108 videos since he revealed to the world in 2009 that he was fighting leukemia.

Now, after 10 years of living with cancer, the 28-year-old's options have run out -- McLean has begun hospice and is preparing to die.

This is his final video:

My doctor says I won. He says I won. I got to believe him. There's nothing else I could have done. I fought to the end. I never said no. Every time we wanted to try a new experimental drug, I stood up to the plate. I swung my bat as hard as I could. Ballgame's over, guys. With that, I'm going to say "bye" for the very last time. I love you all.
