Alice’s Bucket List

This is the most inspirational thing online at this instant. Alice Pyne is 15 and has been fighting cancer for years. Turns out the fight isn’t going well. She started a blog Monday. Here’s a quote from it:

Hi, I’m 15 years old and live with my parents and sister in Ulverston. 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 :)

Here’s the list:

  • To make everyone sign up to be a bone marrow donor
    To swim with sharks
    To go to Kenya (I can’t travel there now but I wanted to))
    To enter Mabel in a regional Labrador show
    To have a photoshoot with Milly, Clarissa, Sammie and Megs
    To have a private cinema party for me and my BFFs
    To design an Emma Bridgewater Mug to sell for charity
    To stay in a caravan
    To have a purple Apple ipad but I’m not really allowed to put that on here and mum is trying to borrow one
    To be a dolphin trainer (I can’t do this one either now)
    To meet Take That
    To go to Cadbury World and eat loads of chocolate
    To have a nice picture taken with Mabel
    To stay in the chocolate room at Alton Towers
    To have my hair done if they can do anything with it
    To have a back massage
    To go whale watching

Since then, people have been getting involved to help her do everything on the list. Some of the people who have stepped up so far are Katy Perry, David Cameron (Prime Minister of England), the band Take That, and more.

Also, Alice doesn’t want money. Here’s another quote:

There isn’t a Paypal or Donate button on here, because I didn’t mean for this to be such a big thing. It was just so that I could write on here and do the things I wanted to do and my friends could read about it them, which I’m still going to do. It’s nice you’re all here too but I really don’t want any money giving and we’ve actually been offered so many wonderful experiences that I’ve definitely got a lot of exciting days ahead.
