Riverview teen Becca Schofield has been fighting cancer for nearly two years, and despite recent bad news, has taken on a new campaign: to persuade people everywhere to perform an act of kindness.
The 17-year-old received the devastating news earlier this month that there are new tumors, and she began making a list of things she wants to do. Doctors say Becca has between three months and a year to live.

“We are crushed beyond imagination that our beautiful strong superhero will not win her battle with this horrible disease,” her mother, Anne Schofield, wrote on her GoFundMe campaign page.
“[Becca] is writing a bucket list and we plan to help her fill as many wishes as we can.”
Already on the list is Becca’s goal of creating “a mass act of kindness.”
“It can be as big or as small as you’d like,” Becca said on Twitter. “Donate to charity, volunteer your time, or even just do the dishes without your parents asking.
“Do something to make someone smile and then tweet what you did under the hashtag #BeccaToldMeTo.”
She hopes the hashtag will trend worldwide.
Hundreds of people are already posting about their good deeds in honor of Schofield, and Riverview Coun. Tammy Rampersaud calls Becca “our own personal Santa.”
“I think inside of each one of us we want to do good … so people are doing small things for others, and they’re doing big things all in Becca’s name and it’s beautiful.”
