15-year-old British girl with terminal cancer has inspired the Internet and Twitter community to help her fulfill her bucket list. Alice Pyne has Hodgkin's lymphoma that has spread throughout her body and her bravery, enthusiasm, commitment and compassion shines through in the blog she started writing recently, entitled Alice’s Bucket List.
This past weekend, she met her favourite group Take That and her 12-year-old sister, Milly, raised £32,730 for cancer research for Race for Life, the biggest female-only fundraising event in the U.K. Her original goal was £1000, before Alice’s story hit the ‘net.
“Hi, I’m 15 years old and live with my parents and sister in Ulverston,” Pyne writes. “I’ve been fighting cancer for almost 4 years and now I know that the cancer is gaining on me and it doesn’t look like I’m going to win this one :( I’m hoping to write in here as much as I can and I’m also going to show my bucket list which I’m trying to get done before I have to go. Hopefully, I’ll update as I tick each one off the list :)”
Her most important wishes, she makes clear in her posts, is to get people to sign up to become a bone marrow donor. It is at the top of her Bucket List, which includes 16 other wishes:
