'Bucket list' teenager Alice Pyne dies of cancer aged 17
Teenager had achieved national fame after creating her bucket list
A teenage cancer patient who achieved national fame after creating a ‘bucket list’ has died at the age of 17.
Alice Pyne created the list of things she wanted to do before she died via her blog, and had managed to achieve most of her goals.
The list attracted the attention of celebrities including footballer Rio Ferdinand and Hollywood star Channing Tatum, and led to the teenager achieving her dreams of meeting Take That and going whale watching.
In a post on Alice’s blog, her mother Vicky broke the news of her death, which occurred on Saturday after battling her illness for six years.
“Our darling girl, Alice, gained her angel wings today. She passed away peacefully with Simon, Milly and myself by her side,” she wrote.
“We are devastated and know that our lives will never again be the same.”
Alice's idea was inspired by the film The Bucket List, which follows Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as they embark on a road trip to do things they want to before they “kick the bucket”.
The 2007 film was a big box office success, grossing over $175 million worldwide.
