feel good friday: stephen's story

Last week, I came across Stephen's Story, and was so incredibly moved by it that I had to share it here. It's amazing to see someone who is facing unimaginable odds be so positive and motivational. Yes, while this story may be sad, it's Stephen's spirit that makes you feel good. He's showing people how to appreciate their lives, though really, it shouldn't take a terminal illness for some people to see the beauty in simply living.

Here's a brief overview from his facebook page:
Stephen Sutton has been battling cancer since the age of 15. On January 13th 2013, shortly after finding out his disease was incurable, Stephen made a Facebook page called “Stephen’s Story”. On the page he outlined a bucketlist of 46 things he wanted to achieve in the near future. Since creating the page Stephen’s following has grown exponentially and he has inspired thousands of others with his positivity and passion for life. He has achieved more than most would in a lifetime; resulting in him winning countless awards in recognition of his inspirational work, most notably he has raised over £560,000 for charity in just one year.
This is not a sob story, this is Stephen’s Story.

  1. I think it is horrific that more people die of cancer than they do of natural causes and old age. I really hope that in my lifetime there will be a cure.
