Cancer surviving Girl Scout who understands how people suffer from several illnesses decided to help sick kids by selling boxes of cookies and donating the proceeds. 8-year-old Lilly Bumpus is a cancer survivor who took on rare Ewing’s Sarcoma as an infant.
Due to her experience, she decided to stand up and help other kids struggling with cancer. She hopes to inspire them that they can also be strong and fight cancer as she did.
This cancer surviving Girl Scout made a decision to help her achieve her dream by selling the most boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in just one season. She sold 32,484, boxes of cookies.
Lilly will be donating a large percentage of the proceeds to help sponsor cancer research. She will also donate to an organization that feeds the homeless.
She showed our community and the world it’s more than just buying cookies or buying a product.Lilly’s mother, Trish Bauer
Although the pandemic derailed most of the in-person selling strategies of the Girl Scout. Lilly played a great role in advocating for cancer awareness and this already put her on social media.

Lilly set a booth outside her house to sell boxes of cookies. Toward the end of the season, Lilly and her mother stayed in the booth for 11 hours selling cookies. Lily conquered the world with her action.
Asides from selling her cookies throughout the United States, she has built a customer base across Spain, Paris, England, Rome, Canada, and even Egypt. Her mother was overwhelmed by the support Lily got from people.
The world is showing my 8-year-old cookie-hustling cancer survivor that together we can and will end cancer. That nothing is impossible when you make it possible!Lily’s mother
