Police help teenage leukemia patient cross off bucket-list item

Police help teenage leukemia patient cross off bucket-list item

A police department in OH helped a young girl with leukemia cross a wish off her bucket list over the weekend.

16-year-old Alyssa Elkins was diagnosed years ago and went into remission after a bone marrow transplant, but the cancer returned and doctors gave her just four months to live. When she was recently told the leukemia was back, Alyssa made a decision to forgo another round of treatment, opting instead to live her remaining time happily with her family.

Talk about a shocking bucket list.

JK:PDP-BJP suddenly called off scheduled meeting:Omar
On his Twitter handle, Omar said that PDP and BJP had called for a meeting after speaker asking for expunging part of CM's speech. However, the Speaker's ruling evoked sharp responses from opposition members belonging to National Conference and Congress.

Aside from getting the chance to Taser someone, her other wishes include going to Cedar Point, Disney World and seeing New York City. "He says being hit with a Taser is an unpleasant experience but it was worth it to help fulfill Alyssa's wish".

One of the officers told the Dispatch the pain, in a controlled environment, was a small price to pay for Alyssa's satisfaction. So Elkins put in an hour of training at the Newark, Ohio, police headquarters, and then lit Sergeant Doug Bline, who had volunteered to take the five-second taser ride, right up. "Well, I didn't know it was going to be that painful really".
