OH WOW

OH WOW OH WOW OH WOW it's the middle of the night and we just hit £10,000 for CANCER RESEARCH by you sponsoring my little sister for her run this weekend.  We can't go to bed because we're hooked on reading all the messages. I feel so good that with your help we are getting more people on the bone marrow donor list AND now we're putting money into supporting cancer research. Happy happy happy :)    
Click here for  Milly's Page and although I still can't tweet I now have a twitter account.  You can tweet me at Alice_Pyne and tell me how to do it.

  1. I'm so proud of you for making such a difference, Alice. Very few people can say that they've made a real difference in the world. I hope that whatever happens to you, that you end up happy. You of all people certainly deserve it.

    Best wishes from Oklahoma :)

  2. Thanks for encouraging people to sign up to be bone marrow donors. My brother had leukemia 6 years ago and he got a bone marrow transplant from Australia (we live in New Zealand). It saved his life. He has a family and 4 children and is an emergency doctor.

  7. Alice,
    Thanks so much for posting on your blog and allowing everyone to read your thoughts and feelings. Currently, I'm in nursing school and things have gotten pretty stressful for me, but reading your blog reminded me of all the goodness and courage that is out in the world. Thanks for being an inspiration!! I hope you're able to achieve some of the things on your bucket list!!

  16. After reading your story, I signed up online for the National Marrow Donor Program here in the US. I was disappointed that they turned me down due to internal surgery within the past 12 months, but you better believe I'll be back to join the registry as soon as those 12 months expire! From San Francisco, California, I am wishing you and your family strength and grace as you fight this beast. How awesome that one little blog could inspire so many people to give of themselves?!?!

  17. Hi Alice,

    This message is coming to you from an island called "Nantucket" It's a small island off the coast of Massachusetts in the United states.

    Anyways, I saw your blog on the internet and I think you are an awesome person for using your time to help raise awareness for the things that are important to you. I wish you all the best and I hope you can do everything that you are able to do on your bucket list. Take care and God bless!

  28. Hi Alice! My son is a leukemia survivor (he is now 21 but started treatment at 12) and I've seen my share of cancer kids and the bravery which comes with chemotherapy. Its a cruel club and I'm sorry you have to experience it. I became a nurse because of this experience and hope to work in oncology. Thank you for promoting bone marrow - I unfortunatly can't since I've had spinal surgery - go figure. But donating blood is still a wonderful way to contribute! I'm assuming you have neuroblastoma - my school friends little girl also faught that battle. If you get a chance, read 90 minutes in heaven - it changed my life - a wonderful story of living and a glimpse of heaven. May God put peace in your heart. You certainly are a gift to all of us THANK YOU. Mary Lee, Minnesota USA

  31. Hi Alice,

    What you're doing is amazing and inspiring. Thank you for posting it online and being such an inspiration.

    Since you can't go to Kenya, you should have an Africa theme party! You could look up how to make some African food, decorate with beads and pictures of the amazing animals, etc etc. Not the real thing, I know, but maybe a bit of a taste!

    Blessings and hugs to you!

  32. Dear Alice.
    i just came here via news.com.au from australia. i really wanted to say for someone half my age you have given me more hope about the human race than anyone else in my life. you are truly a special person that gives everyone hope for a better world. if everyone could have as much courage, desire. self motivation and generosity as yourself the world would be a better place.. i would really love for you to know that my family and i have talked about the bone marrow registry in australia and as my mum has had breast cancer and beat it she is very supportive of all of our family becoming registered, i hope maybe we can make a difference to someone else's life as you have to ours.
    good-luck Alice be brave, strong and never give up! we will be thinking of you and will follow you blog daily. you have nations of people sending you good vibes and wishing you the best

  48. Hi Alice,

    I just found your page though the web and thought I'd drop you a note. As a parent, I've seen what you are going though. My daughter is a cancer survivor - 6 years as of May 23rd. She just received great news from her MRI on Tuesday. My heart aches knowing that your news is not as good. You are such an inspiration to all of us in the U.S. (Ohio). What an amazing young lady! Know that we are all praying for you and your family. I will check back soon as I now have you in my "favorites"!

  59. Alice,

    I'm so proud of you - you are doing a great job raising awareness of the importance of being a bone marrow donor. I used to volunteer here in the States for the Make A Wish foundation and was very lucky to meet a girl your age who also was fighting cancer. Things didn't look good and she never gave up. 20 years later she was the best man at my wedding (I know, a girl for a best man isn't the norm, but she was MY best man).

    I wish you all the best and if you ever make it to the states, come to Kirkland Washington and I'll arrange a fun raiser at my wife's business. You can also enjoy all the hot dogs you want (we have a hot dog business) and meet lots of dogs that we helped rescue through our business.

    Again, so proud of you!

  61. Hey! This is Marina, from Brazil!!! Just wanted to say you're such a great example to the world. You're showing the world - that is full of hate and war - that even in such bad conditions, we can still manage to see the bright side. You have a life, you have to live it to the BEST. You have a chance to win, so take it, believe it and push it to limit, or even towards the limits!!
    Wonderful to see you have a smile on your face, even when you're feeling pain and fighting cancer.
    So keep strong, keep it real, keep going on. Keep being a great role model, this world needs more people like you!!
    You have an awesome and supportive family, as I can see in you blog, so enjoy it!! Take their love and give it back, renew this love always.
    They need you as much as you need them. and I'm sure you know it. (:
    Congratulations!!! Keep strong, kid.
    Love and PEACE,

You're being so completely selfless and, through you're struggle, you've still managed to smile and help raise awareness for organizations and you've gotten so many people to donate bone marrow, so you're the reason so many lives will be saved. You're a hero, and I really, truly and completely admire you.

  74. Dear Alice,

    All I can say is WOW! You are so amazing. I thought that my bullies were bad but my daily fights are nothing compared to cancer. Reading your story really gave me perspective and helped me to think about all the good things in my life. I hope you have fun at Take That and all the other exciting things that you will get to do because your blog became famous. I know you never intended to have so many people follow your blog, but you are truly inspiring!

    I am planning to write to some kids on Post Pal and I hope to follow your blog and comment often. Thank you for writing and for sharing your story. It was exactly what I needed today! My family will be praying for you.

  76. Hi Alice,
    I know you've probably got thousands of emails at this stage and from a lot more important people than me but I felt compelled to write to you tonight. I never do things like this or write emails to people because i usually think it's a bit silly. My name is Eimear Reilly and I'm 19 today, I'm from Ireland and I heard about you on the national radio station rte1 at 6oclock today. I think you are an absolute inspiration to everyone out there sick or healthy and are an EXTREMELY special person. I hope as many dreams come through for you as possible.
    I'll include you in my prayers over the next while :) (if you don't believe in all that stuff it's okay :) ) I'm working far away from home at the moment but you've inspired me not to fight or argue with my family when i get to see them this weekend. I had lukeamia when i was 5 and luckily i'm healthy now. I promise I'll raise more money than ever for them in the future.
    Hope your sleeping okay tonight.
    All my love and best wishes,

  79. Hello, my name is Matt, I'm 21...I had cancer myself when I was 12-14. I just want to say you certainly have touched many with your blog/list, bringing awareness to cancer research and especially childhood cancer research - I'm working to organize some charity events for St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. You're incredibly brave, I would have never been as strong as this if things took a turn for the worse...takes a very special person to do this!

    So just wanted to let you know that you have someone thinking of you all the way over here in Coeburn, Virginia! :)

  88. You probably already know this (if so plz ignore this post), but you were a worldwide TT last night. The highest position I saw #AliceBucketList reach was no. 3. The trend lasted for several hours. I'm just wondering that since you haven't mentioned it and it was during the night, maybe you didn't see it? Ask for screenshots if you need it, I took one and I'm sure others did too. *Hugs*.

Thanks for posting your bucket list...it's an exercise I have done over the last 20 years, and now insist that my students complete one before they leave high school. One never knows when the last day will be, but we all know (somewhere in our heart and soul) that life is 100% lethal. You are inspiring people to do what matters, to make each day a memory and to let go of the petty problems that won't be remembered past next week. Thank you for your honesty and willingness to share your journey. I've just registered and will be sending in my cheek swabs (not painful at all!) as soon as I can. I'll be following your posts...blessings and prayers sent to you from Tacoma, Washington. :)

  94. Alice,
    You've struggled more than most anybody can say they've struggled their whole lives. I'm 25 and I can (And will!) say a 15 year old is inspiration to me. Your bucket list is one of the most selfish-less ones I've ever seen. You just really want to enjoy life with family and friends. I really hope you get to do everything you've wanted. You're such a pretty girl and you seem like you hold your head high with pride. Be safe and stay strong dearest Alice.

    You are such an inspiration to me! I just found your blog today, when I was sort of having a pity party for myself over something that, in the grand scheme of things DOES NOT MATTER! Thanks for helping me put things into perspective. I am going to see what I need to do to sign up to be a bone marrow donor.
    Much Love,

  100. If you can make it to the Yucatan, we can work on taking care of three of your bucket list:
    To swim with the whale sharks
    (that actually takes care of two things on you list)
    and to receive a back massage.
    I provide and teach massage in Valladolid, Yucatan, MX. When I lived in the USA, I was a professional massage therapist and was selected to go to Athens to provide massage services for the 2004 Paralympics. I have extensive experience providing massae to clients with life-altering conditions including fibromyalgia, HIV/AIDS and cancer.

  101. So glad I found your blog. I tried to sign up to be a bone marrow donor a couple of years ago and because of my pernicious anemia they turned me down. I also can't donate blood which makes me very sad. But I am so looking forward to joining you on your journey through this life. I have another very good friend fighting Cancer also. My prayers are going to Heavenly Father for both of you.

    Thank you for using your precious time to spread the word about bone marrow donation. I work in a children's hospital affiliated with a St. Judes clinic, and we see soooo many sick kids that could maybe be helped by this procedure. Keep your spirits high and always remember that anything is possible, just look what has happened in a few days! Even if your time on earth is over, you will always be remembered for your works while you were here. Congrats on all your accomplishments and know that you are a special young lady. Many blessings to you and your family!!!! You will be in my families thoughts.

    I wanted to let you know I've signed up to be a marrow donor directly because of you. After I did, I posted it on Facebook and another friend signed up as well.

  152. Maybe you could try bioenergy therapy. Some people got treated by it and it helped them a lot. Some people I know tried some herbs like taheebo tree or Pau de Arko. I know that here in Toronto that there are some Chinese doctors that treat with natural methods successfully. Say hello to your mother and wish her lots of patience. Kiss your dog to the nose and stay positive. If you believe in God, pray to your Angel. May God bless you. You stay in my mind. With friendship, Dominik.

  176. Alice I hope your life will impact all those who are selfish with their lives. I have been on the bone marrow donor list now for approx 20 years and I have never been called. I am sure somewhere out there I was a match. Sorry I am doubtful of the registry or I am sure after 20 yrs I could have helped someone.

  178. Dear Alice,

    I was on the Internet tonight and saw the headline of your story and all that you have been through. I think it is SO cool and amazing that you are trying to fulfill all of your goals and dreams on your bucket list. It really is inspiring that even in the position you are in, you still are striving to make the best of it. I wanted to tell you that my family and I are all praying for you. You really are an inspiration - not only for me, but for the whole world. Continue to be who you are, and never lose your hope and faith!

    Love,
    David

    P.S. - Enjoy your new iPad, there are REALLY cool!

  179. Alice,

    Reading your blog, I am reminded of a song called "Pass It On" that we used to sing in church when I was a child. The lyrics begin with "It only takes a spark to get a fire going, and soon all those around can warm up in its glowing...you spread his love to everyone; you want to pass it on."

    One person can make a difference. Each of us will pass it on.

    Good luck with your bucket list!

    Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

    God bless,
    Ana (USA)

  180. Hi there from Caledonia, New York, a bitty farming village 20 mi from Rochester... I just started signing up for the marrow registry. Have thought about it for years but never ran across a physical collection point; I never knew you could do it online! My daughter is 16, and I'm guessing she'll sign up too after I show her your blog. Good work, miss!

  181. Hi Alice,

    You are 1 VERY brave girl! Not many people have lived life you you seem to be doing now. You've made everyone look at donating marrow in a whole new light... And you've probably saved hundereds of lives! Everyone will remember you in years to come!!

    It sucks that you can't travel. I live in the UAE and theres a LOT of things you'd love doing here. See the tallest building in the world, swim with dolphins at Aquaventure, slide down the tallest waterslide in the world... Maybe go on the fastest rollercoaster in the world if the rest sounds boring! Lol!

    You said you wont... But I hope you beat the cancer anyway! You deserve to beat it!

    I've posted your blog on my facebook for all my friends to see and for them to share as well! You shuold add 'Be Famous' on to your list... And then tick it off! : )

    Good Luck Alice

    Greetings from Los Angeles, California, USA. Your story has touched our hearts. You are such amazing sisters. Both of you are an inspiration to the rest of us.

    Please post to your blog that to donate to RACE FOR LIFE you CAN use PAYPAL, so your admirers and fans in the USA can donate without any problem. I just did!

    Bless both of you girls and your entire family! Your parents must be absolutely amazing to have children like you two. Sending prayers, love and hugs.

    Best wishes,
    Margo

I wish you all of your dreams come true! I'm on the other side of the pond here in Pennsylvania, USA but if there is ever anything I can do for you.... just say the word... because your words have done so much for me!

  187. Hi Alice!
    I saw this article on MSNBC, and I think what you're doing is amazing. Not many people are able to touch so many lives, and you're doing this at the age of 15.
    Your strength and maturity is such a gift for other cancer patients going through this, and I think you're demonstrating outstanding courage. I consider it a blessing to have been able to read your blog, and to have been "technilogically" introduced to such an amazing young woman.

  188. when i was younger than you are now, my dad told me that even the tiniest movement in the universe carries on infinitely--expanding in waves out and out until the end of time. i didn't believe him them, but now i know it's true.

    did you ever think when you were pressing your fingers into those blogging keys that someone across the world would read your words, and that they would change her? 'cause they did. so i'm gonna pay it forward. i'm already a marrow donor, but some of my friends aren't. i'm posting a link to your blog, your sister's fundraising page, and be-the-match on my facebook age to see if i can't get some of my circle to sign up, donate, and send endless waves of healing your way.

    loads of love from berkeley, california (and an extra hello from my chocolate labrador girl, Sawyer, to your golden pup!)

  189. Hi Alice, Wow what an inspiration you are! I will be praying that you accomplish everything on your bucket list. Most people don't accomplish even a fraction of what you have done over the past couple of days. You are truly amazing, always remember and believe that.

  193. So first off I think you need to add "Inspire Millions" to this list with a check mark.
    My best friend had ALL (Leukemia) when we were young, one of my first memories is being in the hospital with her for chemo.. Because of this I have recently registered with Be the Match Bone Marrow registry... Don't give up! <3

  198. Hi Alice

    I posted earlier and have been swept along by all of the events surrounding your Blog. Like you I am new to Blogging and Twittering but I was also wondering whether you had a Facebook account?

    You are breaking all the records on all the social sites so perhaps it might be an idea to see how many FB friends you can amass as well. I can see it being into the millions the way this is going. Can I be one BTW?

    You may not be able to get to the world girl but the world is certainly coming to you. Great init?

    Love to you all.

  199. Hey Alice; My name is Amy. I was on Twitter last night and could not understand what it was. I have tweetdeck, and could not read any of the posts, they were going by so fast. I am excited for you! I am telling you it was incredible to watch! I have not seen it totally yet, but I saw a little of it on a news website. I would love to help you. I think that I could get on the list for bone marrow, my mother in law is. I will ask her how. I have a blog too, but I haven't posted in a long time, I am supposed to be keeping my house clean. hehe right. I try to put in a little inspirational bit that I get from Godvine.com. A nice site that has videos that are inspiring, and a story at the end (I think they are true, they should be) I will be praying for you that you get the things that you want to get done. Did you get to meet Take That? Over in America, the big deal is Justin Bieber. I personally like the Jonas Brothers. I hope that you get the photos that you want. Also, did you get your dog in a show? You are very inspirational! God Bless!
    Amy
