Alice's Bucket List

Alice Pyne has cancer. The 15-year-old from Ulverston [U.K.] has been battling the disease for nearly four years, but her recent scan suggests her cancer has spread beyond the point of hope. “Now I know that the cancer is gaining on me,” she writes in her blog profile, “and it doesn’t look like I’m going to win this one.”

Though she may not be long for this world, there are still many things Alice hopes to accomplish while she’s around. On her mother’s advice, Alice created Alice’s Bucket List — “a blog to document this precious time with my family and friends, doing the things I want to do.”

Among the things Alice would like to do: Swim with sharks; meet Take That; go to Kenya; and make everyone sign up to be a bone marrow donor. “Some are possible,” she says. “Some will remain a dream.”
