9 June 2011

It's manic

I know I said this yesterday, but I can't believe that so many people have taken an interest in my blog.  They even mentioned me on This Morning and one thing that was said was what about other sick kids?  I agree, there are lots of other kids like me and I thought that the best thing I could do is link to my favourite site for making poorly kids smile.  Just click the Post Pal link and it will take you there and you can write and send happy post to lots of other kids with cancer and other serious illnesses.

I said that I didn't want any donations because I have most of the things I need, but if anyone wants to donate to something close to my heart, they can support my sister who is running the Race for Life for me this Sunday.  I've put a link to her page but this isn't a begging thing, it's just there for those who want to.  I've also put links to the Bone Marrow registers and to another great charity called FAN.

Now for my mega exciting news :))
I'm off to see Take That this weekend, can you believe it?  I am so excited and really can't wait, I just hope that I don't get ill or something daft. I've lived in PJs for about a year so mum is going to town to buy some things to bring back for me to try.  She'll bring loads but I'll no doubt end up wearing leggings and a shirt :)

We've had lots of people helping us to sort through all of the email and everyone who has emailed will hopefully get a reply from us.  I had lots of lovely people offer to help me get an iPad but close family friends have ordered one for me now, so I'll soon be blogging from that. I'll get my mum to post a picture of me on it :)  It also looks like the other things I wished to do are being organised so thank you to everyone for that.  I feel a very lucky girl.

I'm off into the Lakes with Mum and Mabel now, for a little wander.

  14. Hi Alice :)

    We have you trending @ 4th on Twitter! Wonder if we can make you the most trending topic in the world this week? :D

    Twitter is simple. To send a tweet, just type whatever you like and hit send. You can send Direct messages by to pals by putting @ before their Twitter name. Eg. to send to me put @thehanvinator

    If you want to add a topic, just put a # before it. Eg. #alicebucketlist

    You can also privately message anyone you are following that is following you back. Just put a capital D and then @thehanvinator and your message :)

    I think its fantastic that the world is responding to your blog and a great opportunity to make your dreams come true whilst getting awareness out about your illness. Your incredibly brave and I wish I had an ounce of the courage you do. Your a reminder to everyone to keep dreaming and take the best you can from life. A true inspiration to us all.

    Hope this helps, all the best x

    PS: I would recommend downloading Tweetdeck as this is a great bit of software that make Tweeting even easier! :)

  16. Alice,

    Twitter's easy peasy! Just sign up, and post your username on here and I'm sure you'll have a couple thousand followers in no time! Then all you have to do is tweet what you feel! You can also keep everyone updated with your bucket list and post photos, anything really!

    Have fun at Take That! Let us know what you get up to next (Cadbury World is brilliant btw, you'd love it!)

  18. I'm so pleased you've got your wish for Take That, have a fun weekend. You've done a massive job to raise the profile for children who are suffering. Well done, you are one very brave girl. I'm too old to be a donor, I can do other stuff tho'

  21. Hi Alice! I am inspired by your desire to make the most of everyday. It's what we all should be doing. My daughter (14 yrs old) had Ewing's Sarcoma and is still in recovery for her leg. She hasn't walked for 18 months now - but we hope a grafting surgery in July will help. Enjoy the Take That concert and the new clothes!!! I'll be praying for you and checking back in on your blog!

  23. Well done Alice - you're causing quite a stir and I've seen your blog posted on Facebook and Twitter lots of times today - many people wanting to do something to help make your dreams come true.

    I would say don't feel bad if people wish to help you as by accepting gifts you are making other people happy too. You come across as very humble and not begging at all.

    It's lovely that you've brought attention to this awful disease in such a positive way - it's the positivity that is drawing people to you - and you never know you may save hundreds of lives through your blog with getting people signed up as donors and finding out more about the disease.

    Great idea to post the links so people know how to help. I think you'll need to put some more things on your bucket list so more people can help you! ;)

    Perhaps even write a book from your blog posts and donate the proceeds to charity...

    Good luck with your wishes and I hope most, if not all, can come true for you and you can stay well enough to enjoy them all to the full.

    Love and light
    Sophie

  27. Literally the most inspiring blog I have read.

    I have never commented on a blog post but felt compelled to congratulate you on your initiative and the unselfish manner in which you are carrying it out by encouraging donations to relevant charities and bone marrow sign-ups.

    I hope to see you achieve everything on your list.

    All the best Alice, you're a star.

  28. Thanks for mentioning about Post Pals. There is some posty from me coming your way.

    So pleased you are getting to meet Take That, I hope you have an amazing time. I'm trying to work out Twitter as well so when you've worked it out perhaps you could let me know - think your Mum is 'following' me and vice versa. Enjoy your walk with Mabel. Lots of love Kate Dee xx

  31. Hey !!

    You're making the world spin.. and it's so great to see you as spirit of humanity.

    It is so lovely to hear you wanting to put the other children in the world first, you sound so self-less... and maybe your blog will start (another) new trend.

    For years now people have been writing to prisoner who are in jail for life.. giving them hope and someone to talk to.

    But why shouldn't this happen to other sectors too, and include people like you, whom are suffering from demoralizing conditions.

    It would be great to think that your legacy could include the www.alicepynesmiles.com a place where people could raise a profile and invite people to write to them, because they are lonely, ill, or in some kind of crisis, where no one appears to listen to them.

    It's magic that things are just beginning to start for you, and PLEASE NEVER FEEL GUILTY, you have not asked for all this support, and the best thing to do would be to start the Alice Pyne Foundation, where people make donations, and then you can choose which hospitals or causes may choose to use your money to make more young children benefit!

    Good look with twitter

    I'm @andrewlarder if you want to follow me :-)

    Best of luck and will write again soon

  34. woohooo!! :) so you're all over the world how brilliant ! enjoy it Alice! yup you're right about there being other sick kids but try not to stress about it. There will always be someone worse off than you, that's not your fault and its not for you to worry about solving those problems. By doing what you are doing now will help them anyway because of your profile, who you are and the awareness you are raising. This is your time, enjoy it and try to have as much fun as you can.
    You are awesome babe, keep going :)
    Lots of love and hugs Jason, Jan and Millie x
    oh and it would be neat to say Hi on twitter @jasebarnett and if you want help with that just tweet something you'll get all the help you need :)

You are very brave and I am so excited to see that you will get to meet Take That! I hope your days are so full of excitement and awe that nothing else keeps you down. You already sound very positive and that is quite key in your battle with that icky cancer. I have been checking out the Post Pals site as well, what a great idea it is.

And regarding the other sick kids - a lovely idea to put the links in but you shouldn't feel at all guilty or bad about what is happening for you - sometimes the goodness of people just takes on a life of it's own and you should focus on that. x

  88. You're such an inspiration, young Alice. Reading your story in the paper this morning first made me sad but then so happy that there are wonderful people like you in the world. Without rays of sunshine like you, this would be a dark, miserable place. I'm just about to sponsor your sister and sign-up to the bone marrow register. I'm going to Kenya in a few weeks and will be thinking of you. xxx

  89. Hi Alice

    Wow. You're a complete inspiration to so many people! I hope you enjoy Take That and that you get to meet the boys. That would be amazing! (I tweeted them, and I know TONS of other people did too, so you just never know!)

    Tweeting is easy, be sure to post your twitter name. And add "trending on Twitter" to your bucket list so you can cross it off.

    Stay lovely, and stay strong.

  91. Hi Alice
    I saw your twitter feed mentioning your wish for a photoshoot. As a photographer I would like to help but am currently unable to find time for a day in Ulverstone. I noticed that you go to Alder Hey for treatment and that's near where I live in Liverpool. Would it be feasible to fit a shoot into a trip down here and would you be well enough during a treatment regime?

    Wishing you all my best. Take care

  93. Alice, I came to your site through Twitter - like half of the world, I suppose. I'm going to look into registering for bone marrow transplants, thanks to you. I mean, why not, if it can help?

    Enjoy Take That, I'm sure it will be brilliant. I hope you get to achieve every on your bucket list (I need to make myself one of those!) plus more. Take care. xx

  121. Hey,

    This is heavy to read. Espescially because here in Holland is this day (9 June 2011) cycling against cancer. Or better: the cyclists are cycling in France. On a mountain called Alpe d'Huez. It's a special mountain for Dutch people because lots of prof cyclists won there a stage in the Tour De France. For this day the mountain is called Alpe d'huZes that's because of the 4000 cyclists are trying to get 6 times up against the mountain. The goal: collect 20 million euros for KWF Kankerbestrijding. That's the Dutch cancer foundation.

    All the best and I hope you will finish your bucket list!

  125. Dearest Alice, I'm writing from the Neatherlands, Amsterdam to be exact. I Always wanted to Live in the U.s That is and was my dream since I could speak. I don't know why , I thought It would make ma on my happyest, but I relize over the years that that isn't the most important thing. Small things make you happy. And I'm thankfull to live were I live. That I my have food, a house and beeing save. and well healthy. I CAN'T believe that I eer thought living in America was my only consurn I was thinking about. You must think and wurry about of all the hungry innocent children (people) and dying children al over the world , I've relized that in th yars I was getting older, but a lot of people don't. ae wurried abut the smallest things they like to call them problems. YOU are such a inspiration for those who can't appriciate life. For those with problems you make them automatic see that the their problems isn't so big anymore. We NEED more people like you on this earth. It makes me angry for the fact you might leave. But at the second thought It also makes me understand, cause you are such a good person, people lik you they are usefull someplace else too. Cause Ever think about it ; That Almost all the good people die soo young. Well there must be a special reason for that. I believe in God, I believe in ghost I believe in heaven and I believe there is saved/reserved even, a special place for you SOMEDAY. When exactually that day will come nobody knows. But wht we do know what I know. is that we all should be thankfull so much cause we had a lil angel hre on earth . I wish you the best you'll be always in our thoughts and prayers. Don't be scared , stay brave in what for way so ever, You'll be fine =D. ThanQ for your life we all appriciate it, thnQ for your blog, we all inspired by it. TRhank you for beeing you . It's heartwarming

  129. Hi Alice,

    I came across your blog a couple of nights ago via a twitter user and I just wanted to leave you a message to wish you all the best. I think this is a fantastic idea and I hope you get everything on your list. Yay for the power of social media!

    I am unable to sign up to the Bone Marrow Transplant list at the moment as I'm a bit underweight, but as there doesn't appear to be any medical restrictions regarding blood transfusions and missing body parts, as soon as I get my weight back up to 8st, I shall be signing up the register. I am already signed up as an organ donor. I'm certain it will be one of the best things I've done for a very long time.

    I hope you have a fantastic time at the Take That concert and I'll be following your progress from here on.

    Best Wishes to you and your family,

    Amy :-)

    Alice, I have wanted to donate bone marrow for many years. I used to donate blood but whilst having my son and daughter, I relied on other doners when I required transfusions. This means I can't be considered and I so hope that one day this will change. I'd love to think that there was something I could do to help u reach your goal, if there is let me know! I think everybody on your blog and twitter would be honoured to be your personal Genie, so ask away Alice, your wishes are our command! Xx

  141. Hi Alice, my name is amanda and I am from Brazil. Ive just read your story. You are a brave girl and your story inspires people. Dont stop believing in your cure. This battle is not over. Jesus can cure you. I know you could say: "well, where was Jesus when I got sick?". I know that sometimes we dont get the answers, but the thing is: miracles happen when people recognize only God can help.Thats the leap of faith. Maybe doctors said that you are a lost case. Maybe you are for man. But for God there is still hope, still cure. We will be praying for you. For your cure and for you being able to do everything you put on your bucket list, and much more. Have fun at Take That. Xoxo

  142. Alice, I have had a bucket list since I was about your age. I regularly consider that life is fleeting and try to take advantage of the opportunities and experiences we can have while here, but I have obviously never been in your situation to REALLY appreciate it all. I signed up to be a bone marrow donor earlier this year and actually just got my confirmation email just last week. I hope you are able to swim with sharks-that was one of my favorite experiences (swimming with whale sharks) and I look forward to hearing about your other adventures too.

  144. You are an inspiration to so many people! Terminal cancer is horrible (we've had a couple of cases in my family) and to have it at your age is horrible.

    It warms my heart though how positive you are, even though it's terminal you arent giving up the fight. You're going out there and living your life. No one can applaud you enough for that!

    I am running and helping out at the race for life next month in memory of my grandad, but i hope that many people will get involved and raise money and support awareness.

    You are an inspiration, keep smiling and make the most of your time! Through yourself cancer awareness has been made more aware to some. YOU have made a difference!

    I hope you get everything on your bucket list. You're truly an inspirational person. I've had my fair share of illness but nothing that can match up to yours and you've been brave throughout. I think Take That should write a song for you :'). And with the tweeting you just type whatever you like unless it's under 140 characters.
    For example: Met Take That today :D

  182. Hi Alice,

    I lost my brother to cancer when he was three, so I'm all too familiar with how devastating dealing with the disease can be. But often when I think of him, I can only remember his smile, and the happiness he brought into other people's lives. You are doing much the same thing, and I greatly admire you for it. I think we too often lose sight of what's really important in life. In spite of everything you are dealing with, that's a message you are sharing with all of us, and I can't say enough about that.

    I also saw that you had whale watching on your bucket list... I really hope you get that opportunity. It's a truly amazing experience, one I'll be praying you get to take part in. I was fortunate enough to go a few times, and there's really nothing else like it. And there are lots of great videos on YouTube... I like just about everything Captain Dave's Dolphin Safari posts.

    My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. Again, you are a tremendous inspiration to all of us, and thank you so much for sharing your story. Your inspiration is going to help a lot of kids, as well as encourage even more people to get involved.

  185. Hi Alice, I think you're more than just a trend on twitter now :)
    You're a very brave girl, I know when I was 15 I wouldn't have been able to show the courage you have.

    Keep blogging and tweeting, I'll be sending some post pals when my exams have finished - I'm a vet student and have some very important exams in 2 weeks - I know if I start writing now I'll be writing for a long time!

    All the best xxx

  186. I saw a tweet today that was #alicebucketlist, and I went to the trend. I found the link to this blog, and I just want you to know all the way from Texas, that you are truly amazing.

    God has big plans for you. You didn't even think that your story could make that big of an impact, but it did.

    Everyone should live life like you, your truly an inspiration. You and your family are in my prayers, and keep on working on that bucket list. Experiencing life is one of the most amazing things, and you are doing it. :)

  190. Hi Alice
    I am a 58 year old guy who does not cry too often. I am blubbing away like a good 'un. You are an inspiration. My daughter is 16 and she means the world to me, I do not know whether our family could be as brave as you are

  192. Hi Alice,

    What a wonderful, inspirational, young woman you are. I'm so pleased that you're going to be able to achieve so many of the things on your list. Also pleased you're doing so much good for others by raising the profile of bone marrow donation.

    Sadly I'm unable for medical reasons to sign the register (stupid spine!), but if there is any other way I can help then I'll definitely get involved.

    Enjoy the concert, I've got friends who've been and said it was fab!

    Keep smiling,

    Alastair

  193. WOW!

    You are without doubt, one incredibly brave and inspirational individual. The love and good will on this blog has left me in tears.

    It's a shame our paths have crossed with your predicament but a shining example of turning a negative into a positive.

    I'm now in the process of working towards your main goal and signing up to be a blood and BM donor.

    With the aid of an army of hope and preys. I hope your journey continues and you find yourself adding more goals to your list daily.

  195. Hi Alice, I posted your blog on twitter and facebook in the hope of getting some more people to sign up to be donors and I have actually signed up myself too. Need to give a saliva swab, how gross but it is completely for a good cause and fingers crossed more people sign up too.
    You are inspirational and I am so pleased you are going to be able to do some of the things on your list! All the best

  196. Dearest Alice

    What an inspiration you are at such a young age. Truly a gift that you are touching so many lives and opening the awareness that is much needed. I am a wedding planner here in California if there is anything I can do or ship to you, I would be so blessed to be part of your journey. I am battling Lupus while caring for my mum who has terminal cancer. Even at our age is such an inspiration to see someone so young touch the hearts of so many. We as a family will be praying for you everyday sweet girl. Sending you much love for your trip this weekend.
    xoxo

  198. Hello Alice,

    I'm an Italian guy so firstly i want to excuse me if you won't understant my post. I'm 20, i live in sicily in a sea town near taormina(maybe you heard it before) and i have known your story thanks to my favorite radio that have broadcasted it. I won't give you advice, opinion, or judgements about your illness and about the fact that you obviously feel hurt because...i just can't. Only you are able to know and hopefully , deal with those horrible things. Now, you're probably wondering why i do this post.

    Well, there are two reason mainly: Number 1) Communicating my general(that is the point) love for empathy. I can share my feelings for mankind with you. Number 2) Giving you a link you'd probably like. it talk about life. Pure life lived with indestructible will. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-rEHMic2KY i hope you like it. :-))

    the are several other reasons though:

    Number 3) The power of a smile( maybe a lot of smile, if possible). There was a time when i only see the world's greatest injuries and wickedness and nothing else. After a series of facts(which are not important for the matter of this discussion) I finally see the reality. It was composed by both evil and good. And I entirely enjoyed all the moments I spent with things and people i really like.
    Number 4(this is the last one, i hope you're still reading eheheheh :))
    not enough people know what their desires are, and how to achieve them. I'm proud to see that you are more clever and really mature than many people of my age.(ok, this is a comment, but forgive me this time ok?)

    Ending this comment is difficult, i don't want to but i have to revise for an exam at university today. My exam will not be in english(luckily :) ). I close it with a wish: having some fun by sending email to you once in a while so and i'll happy if you answer me. (my address: Kvtl@hotmail.it)
    excuse me again for the language. bye!!! And....

    ....many Hugs from Italy, Sicilia, Santa teresa di riva(me).

  199. Hi Alice,
    I just wanted to let you know that after reading your blog I went to www.bethematch.org and joined the bone marrow registry and I think many more will too. Thanks to you and twitter many lives will be saved. I am so glad that you are getting your wishes.
