  • Comments Off on 16-Year-Old with Cancer Completes ‘Bucket List’ of Dreams

An inspirational teenager has completed her list of all the things she wanted to do after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Alice Pyne from Ulverston in northwest England became a worldwide Internet sensation when she published her “bucket list” online just over a year ago. Help came from pouring in from across the globe.

The 16-year-old has been able to swim with sharks, go to her school prom and meet the band Take That. Now she’s celebrating completing her list with her latest adventure: whale watching in Canada.

“It was really amazing because in the beginning I didn’t even know it was going to get published, and so I didn’t expect half the things to get done, never mind finishing it,” Pyne said.

Alice had 17 items on her bucket list. Her mom gave her the idea to help take her mind off her terminal cancer. Her biggest achievement: Getting 40,000 people to join the bone marrow register.

The teenager had hoped to become a dolphin trainer, but settled on swimming with sharks instead.  She also took part in a Labrador retriever show with her dog, Mabel. The last item on her list — whale watching — was something she’d given up hope of doing, but her parents surprised her by arranging the trip to Vancouver, British Columbia.

Alice is still fund-raising for charity with her friends, and her parents are planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to give families with seriously ill youngsters vacations in the lakes.

“I mean, it’s just been incredible,” said Alice’s mother, Vicky Pyne. “We know that what’s going to happen to Alice is going to happen — you know, that doesn’t change — but we’ll always have these special times to look back at. People have made it amazing for us. And I’ve got so many friends in hospital who literally had weeks’ notice of their kids going and they didn’t get this time, so I can’t be miserable about it.”
