I spotted this in the Metro, and when I read the story, I became aware of what an amazing young woman Alice Payne was. Despite battling Hodgkins lymphoma for four years, this amazing 17 year old created and completed her bucket list, set up a charity called Alice’s escapes, and raised more than £100,000 for good causes.
Her last post to her blog on New Years day included her excitement at a static caravan being delivered for the charity. She wrote
I’ll try really hard not to pop off in the next few weeks and then I can be at the open day we’re planning!
Visit and have a read of her blog, she is one brave, inspirational and amazing young woman who has made a HUGE impact on the world in her short 17 year life. Not satisfied with just charity work, she also cmpaigned on national issues. In Spetember 2012 She was in the Guardian, campaigning against the changes to child benefits.
Her twitter profile motto ‘One life…. live it’ should be adopted by all of us.
The top item on her list was the hope that everyone in the UK signed up to be a bone marrow donor. I am, are you?
