So brave!

15-year-old Alice Pyne of Ulverston, England was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma almost four years, and although it doesn't look like she has much longer, she's remaining very positive, and has become a top Twitter trend all over the world.

Alice has written a bucket list of things she'd like to do before she dies, and through the hashtag #alicebucketlist, she's gained the support of thousands of people, and many celebrities including Johnny Depp, Ryan Seacrest, Jimmy Fallon, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber.

Her bucket list items include "to get a massage" and "to have a private cinema party for me and my BFFs," but her #1 goal on the list is to get her supporters to sign up to become bone marrow donors.

Her top request has gone all the way to the British government, and Prime Minister David Cameron has promised to lend his support.

We are inspired with how brave Alice is, and how she's making such a positive impact while she can!

Thank you so much for being such a wonderful influence on the world, Alice! Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

CW Starlets Get Mani's For A Cause

To show their support for bone marrow donors, Michelle Trachtenberg and AnnaLynne McCord got their nails done for free at Sally Hansen's Color that Cares event in El Lay.

At the event, Michelle said "you come in and get a manicure, you get swabbed and could end up becoming a real-life donor."

Sounds easy! And who doesn't like a free manicure?

AnnaLynne said of her new blue nails:

"I initially started out with grass slippers, and then I decided to get crazy and empower more people to get their nails done, so right now I’m rocking a very very bright blue…they’re pretty fabulous if I do say so."

Glad the two had fun while raising awareness for such a good cause!
