8-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Crushes Girl Scout Cookie Selling Record


Here's today's feel-good story:

Lilly Bumpus of San Bernardino, California has broken the national record for most girl scout cookie boxes sold in one season with 32,484 boxes! This also includes 5,000 donation boxes to go to "fellow childhood cancer warriors in the hospitals, to help feed the homeless in our communities and to our deployed troops," according to her Facebook page.

Lilly's mother Trish said that it has been an "insane season" with orders flying in. Lilly and her parents would make cookie deliveries both before and after school while also setting up a booth outside their house.

"Lilly has always been blessed with the community of supporters she's had with her, but for the first time, the world saw she had her own voice, her own mission, her own site that is bigger than cancer," said Lilly's mom Trish. "She just needed a space to do her own thing, and this was it."
