Channing Tatum video kisses get sick girl closer to top bucket-list wish

Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum film a message on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on March 2.

A sick teenage girl's desire to kiss Channing Tatum achieved "almost done" status on a bucket list of things she would like to accomplish thanks to videos the actor filmed and sent to her.

Alisa Finley is an 18-year-old high school student in Colby, Kan., who, according to a Facebook page dedicated to her, suffers from a malignant brain tumor. Her bucket list includes the Tatum kiss as priority No. 1 and below that are 47 other hopes and dreams, including swimming with dolphins at No. 5, walking on the Great Wall of China at No. 25, and jumping into a pool fully clothed at No. 46.

A video uploaded to the page earlier this month shows Tatum delivering his best wishes to the girl. Wearing a hat and a hoodie, the actor says in his hand-held recording, "Just know that you're loved and and we're giving you a big old kiss from over here."

His intro serves as a set-up for another video he shot, with his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum, on Oscar night March 2 on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair party.

"Alisa, hello my love, we're just here, just want to give you a big old kiss and say we love you," the "Magic Mike" star says before breaking into an impromptu version of the Pharrell Williams song "Happy."

At No. 17 on Alisa's list, "give people a reason to remember me" is checked off as "done." For Tatum, that's clearly been the case. And a random, recent tweet from the actor may offer a little insight.
