Here I am 1 year later in remission.

Here I am 1 year later in remission. I was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma in May of 2016 after 9 months of tests. I did 12 rounds of bi- weekly chemo and here I am 1 year later in remission. I participate every year in the walk on behalf of my mother and this year I want to proudly wear a Red shirt.

New Canada 150 Stamp Honour’s Terry Fox

New Canada 150 Stamp Honour's Terry Fox Terry Fox’s sister unveils stamp honouring Canadian icon and one of Canada’s unforgettable moments of last 50 years. Judith Fox was in Newfoundland on May 25 to launch a new stamp honouring her brother’s remarkable Marathon of Hope.  Terry’s run inspired Canadians, captivated a country, and launched a lasting legacy across Canada and around the world.  Judith unveiled Canada Post’s stamp at a ceremony at St. John’s City Hall, not far from Mile 0 – the spot where the Marathon of Hope began on April 12, 1980 when Terry Fox dipped his artificial right leg into the Atlantic Ocean. Children from Roncalli Elementary in St. John’s also participated in the ceremony and proudly displayed posters explaining how Fox has inspired them to believe they can achieve whatever goals they have in life. Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope is one of the most identifiable and cherished events in Canadian history. It remains an enduring symbol of courage, selflessness and hope.
