RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - Sixteen-year-olds aren't supposed to have "bucket lists," but sadly there's a Northern Nevada teenager who has been fighting cancer valiantly for three and a half years and doctors have told her there's not much more they can do.

There are some special activities and places she wants to go this summer to check them off her bucket list.

We first introduced our viewers to Lola Scott back in December when profiling the new Children's Specialty Center of Nevada.     

Lola has been battling a type of cancer called Undifferenciated Soft Issue Sarcoma.

In June, the 16-year-old got devastating news: the cancer had spread in both her lungs.

"I'm in a time crunch. I don't know how much time I have so I'm going to do it now, do it before times runs out."

Lola has created a working bucket list of things she wants to do.

Some are trips she'd like to take, people she'd like to meet, but there are simple things too.

"I have one thing on there, eat a Doritos taco, it sounds revolting but I want to try it!"

Two weeks ago, she went to Lake Tahoe with her mom to knock some of the items off her list, like parasailing and kayaking. She says she loves to be in or around the water. This week, Lola and her mom are in Los Angeles, hoping to see the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and maybe some real ones too.

"Lauren wants to have her picture taken on the Hollywood sign," her mother says ."I have some friends who are working with LAPD to do it legally, if not we'll figure out something else!"
