Liz Evett, the 18-year-old Washington state girl diagnosed with Leukemia who was visited in the hospital by Mary Alice of Ace of Cakes, died on Monday.
After Liz stopped responding to chemotherapy in June, she got inspired by the 2007 movie The Bucket List and set out to create her own list of things she hoped to do before she died. Meeting someone from Charm City Cakes was on that list.
In a twist of fate, Mary Alice just happened to be in Seattle when a story ran in the local paper about Liz. Included in that story was one of Liz's bucket list wishes to meet someone from the show.
After learning of her death, Mary Alice wrote on Liz's website:
"Meeting her was one of the most meaningful days of my life. She has touched so many people, and I will be forever in her debt for making (my) life a more grateful and peaceful life." [Source]
Remember to hug the people you love this New Year's Eve!
