Becca Schofield has been fighting cancer for nearly two years, and despite recent bad news, has taken on a new campaign: to inspire people everywhere to perform an act of kindness.

"Since so many people want to help with my bucket list, Dad and I have masterminded a plan that will allow anyone to help with my bucket list," she wrote on Facebook. "No matter who you are, if you see this message, please do an act of kindness for someone else."

"I want them to take the focus away from all the bad things that happen in this world and I want them to realize that this life is a gift and you have to cherish every moment that you get," Schofield told CTV News.

"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."

People around the world have been fulfilling Schofield's wish one kind act at a time.
