When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal disease, it turns an entire family’s world upside-down. Rarely does anyone see it coming, and the news is jarring when it hits.
A cancer diagnosis doesn’t discriminate: It affects people from all walks of life. Often, there is no single explanation as to how or why it developed; regardless, after doctors deliver the news, it’s up to the individual to decide how they’d like to treat it.
Seventeen-year-old Becca Schofield is battling terminal cancer, but she isn’t letting her diagnosis get in the way of her ultimate goal: Making the world a better place…
Becca Schofield, a 17-year-old high school student, was given the tragic news earlier this month that her cancer had returned in the form of several new tumors.
Doctors told her she had anywhere from a few months to a year to live, so Becca decided she would take action and change the world before she left it.
Becca started the hashtag #BeccaToldMeTo in an attempt to create a worldwide movement of people engaging in random acts of kindness to help make the world a better place for us all.
Becca’s hashtag took Twitter by storm, with hundreds of people from her hometown and nearby towns displaying random acts of kindness to complete strangers.
We can all learn a valuable lesson from Becca: No matter what situation life hands you, finding something positive to focus on is always worth it.
