Cancer victim's wish to be Twitter trending topic comes true


( Fifteen year-old Alex Pyne, who has been battling with cancer for four years, composed a bucket list which included swimming with sharks, visiting Kenya, and becoming a Twitter trending topic, reports ABS-CBN. Now she can check one off her list-her inspiring blog and list managed to become a global Twitter topic.


"Mum always tells me that life is what we make of it and so I’m going to make the best of what I have and because there were so many things I still wanted to do, mum suggested that I turn my ideas into a bucket list," she wrote in her blog, which she started on June 6. "There are so many things I still want to do in life... some are possible, some will remain a dream."


Pyne, whose courage has inspired so many people, has received thousands of comments on her blog. Her blog and bucket list eventually became viral on Twitter, fulfilling an item from her list. Celebrities such as actor Channing Tatum, NFL starting receiver Jeremy Maclin, and news anchor Terry Moran tweeted about her blog, reports ABS-CBN News.



"I don’t sleep very well and I sat up all night reading (the comments) as they came in from all over the planet, every single one, and they have made me smile so much so that is a good thing," she said.
