She mentions her wish list, of things she would like to do, and also campaigns for more bone marrow transplants. (There are no gory pictures or anything like that).

...to read this blog. I came across it through another source, and it's really worth a read. Her kid sister is running in a cancer research fundraiser this Sunday and she lists her sister's page so you can support her if you'd like. Thanks to readers, Alice is actually going to get to do some of the things on her list before she "has to go", as she says. I've found her words to be far more inspiring than sad.
