People Worldwide Are Honoring A Dying Teen's Last Wish — You May Want To As Well

Almost two years ago, now 17-year-old Rebecca Schofield from Riverview, New Brunswick, had a cancerous brain tumor removed.

After months of chemotherapy, “All her scans were clear. We thought we were out of the woods,” said her mom, Anne Schofield. But late last year, doctors found two more tumors that were inoperable. They told Rebecca that she only had three months to a year to live.

After receiving the devastating news, the Canadian teen decided to make her time count not only for herself, but others as well. In addition to creating a bucket list, she’s asking people to simply be kind to each other by doing good deeds in her name and sharing them on social media with the hashtag #BeccaToldMeTo.
