There’s an 18 year-old girl from Kansas who is fighting a battle that most of us wouldn’t be able to handle. She has stage 4 Glioblastoma, a brain tumor. But instead of locking herself away and being depressed, Alisa is truly living. Not only that, but she is inspiring people worldwide to help her achieve her dreams.
She has been battling stage 4 brain cancer since July 2012. In 2014, she was placed in hospice care after a deadly prognosis.
There, she made a 48-item bucket list … and started something amazing. She gained a following on Facebook…
And soon, people from all over the world were sending pictures of their love and support.
They just want to show Alisa how they are thinking of her and wish her well.
People in Colby are rallying to help Alisa complete her bucket list. Even companies, like this Starbucks, are trying to help her out.
Alisa has started checking things off of her list already! Here she is having a pie war outside of her school.
Then, she went on a shopping spree and paid for everything in pennies.
Next, she tried every kind of cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory.
At school, she was serenaded by a man… whom she proposed to right after (even though the proposal was just for fun)!
On March 10th, Alisa received good news from doctors…
And now she is on her way to Paris!
“Alisa knows in life there is no guarantees for tomorrow for anyone, and that she only needs to live for today.” -Alisa’s mother
