Girl With Cancer Wins Supporters With Bucket List Blog
Alice Pyne may not have a lot of time, but she’s determined to make the most of what she has.
Alice is a 15-year-old British girl with terminal cancer who is made waves with a bucket list she’s posted online.
Perhaps Alice’s biggest wish is “everyone sign up to be a bone marrow donor.”
She has been besieged by people sending her well wishes, writing, “Thank you so much for all your lovely messages to me. I don’t sleep very well and I sat up all night reading them as they came in from all over the planet, every single one, and they have made me smile so much so that is a good thing.”
Alice has some pretty interesting items she’s hoping to check off, including swimming with sharks and to go to Kenya.
Give the young girl credit for her bravery. As she says, “I know that the cancer is gaining on me and it doesn’t look like I’m going to win this one.” Despite the long odds she added, “Mum always tells me that life is what we make of it and so I’m going to make the best of what I have.”
