He means extremely non selfish because he ran 3339 miles for cancer research when he could just take the money for himself. if i raised millions of dollars i would use it for college money. it also means a hero to me because less people die of cancer then they did before. mostly because of Terry.

Terry is a role model in my life because he never gave up. He was very generous and he ran so much just to help people like him, people that had cancer. We continue to follow him by doing Terry Fox runs till this day.

Terry Fox was a person that was very special to many people, to my friends, family, teachers and even myself. Terry ran for the people who had cancer and that is why we run for a cure for cancer. Terry Fox means a lot to me because he sacrificed himself for others who had cancer.

Terry Fox was a very good role model. He showed what actual Canadians can be. He was strong, pure hearted, and worked hard to run so far. He raised a big amount of money, but as we all know he had one problem in him, cancer. I think he lost his leg when he was around 22.

I think Terry Fox means to never give up, help sick people, and also be nice to every one from different countries and cultures. I also think Terry Fox means be grateful even if you have disease or sickness and don't make fun of people with diseases or sickness.

Terry Fox ran from Newfoundland to Ontario. He dipped his artificial leg in the water. He had cancer, so he started the marathon of hope, we run for him every year, for his cancer research.

Terry Fox was a brave man who was trying to find a cure for cancer. For my class, Terry represents kindness and compassion. His memory is kept alive by having an annual walk which allows all Canadians to fight against cancer.

Josh’s Journey

By | 2017-12-15T23:26:10+00:00 April 10th, 2017|your stories|

Josh's Journey This is Josh's story, as told by his Mom. Josh turned 15 in January, 2009. He was a typical teen, in his first year of secondary school, socially active, decent student and a competitive swimmer. In that April he started to experience headaches, which everyone thought were migraines due to family history. By May, his vision was starting to get blurry. I took him to our optometrist and he discovered severe pressure behind Josh's eyes and some hemorrhaging. First thing the next morning we were a London hospital being told that Josh had a mass in his brain. That night he underwent his first surgery to relieve the pressure that had built up. Resection surgery followed, where it was determined that Josh had a malignant immature teratoma of the pineal region of his brain. He started a chemotherapy protocol which instead of shrinking the remainder of the tumour, it caused it to grow. On the day he should have begun grade 10 he was once again undergoing surgery to resect the tumour. The doctors could only remove about half during that surgery and two days later Josh again endured another long surgery. This time he suffered massive brain swelling and ended up with a set of complications common to pediatric brain tumour patients, Posterior Fossa Syndrome. He was then sent for several weeks of both whole brain and targeted radiation therapy. Josh returned home November 23/09. He was mute, had no control of voluntary functions, was on a feeding tube, could not sit or stand and now suffered from a seizure disorder. That was 8 years ago. Neither Josh, his family or his friends gave up. As his brain healed he worked very hard to regain all that he had lost. He has had [...]

Linda Reimer, MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam “Terry Fox is an inspiration to all Canadians and especially those of us here in the Tri- Cities. He devoted his life to finding a cure for cancer and has left us a lasting legacy to continue his work. I am privileged to have played a part in the B.C. government’s decision to proclaim September 14, 2014 as Terry Fox Day. The significant contribution and tireless efforts that Terry Fox made in our province, and to the countless lives he has touched, are a tribute to this rare individual. I am looking forward to participating in this Sunday’s Terry Fox Run.” Rolly Fox, Father of Terry Fox "Terry knew before he passed away that there would be an annual event in September, the month he was forced to stop running, that offered us all the opportunity to symbolically complete the Marathon of Hope.

Terry Fox Foundation announces new Board of Directors

By | 2017-01-26T10:53:26+00:00 August 15th, 2013|Recent Posts|

Terry Fox Foundation announces new Board of Directors The Terry Fox Foundation hosted its Annual General Meeting where newly elected board members gathered for the first time. At the meeting, the board of directors unanimously supported a resolution that expressed their genuine appreciation to Mr. Isadore Sharp for his dedicated service to the Marathon of Hope over the past 33 years. In recognition of his long term commitment to Terry's vision of eradicating cancer Mr. Sharp was elected to the new role of chairman emeritus to the Board. Mr. Sharp was the first Canadian corporate leader to support Terry's courageous journey and was founder of the annual run. The Marathon of Hope has raised more than half a billion dollars for cancer research. In the fall of 1980 after cancer forced Terry to return to Vancouver for treatment, Mr. Sharp proposed organizing an annual fundraising run named the "The Terry Fox Run". He wrote in a telegram to Terry: "The Marathon of Hope has just begun. You started it. We will not rest until your dream to find a cure is realized ... your courage and determination has been an inspiration to us." "Mr. Sharp's steadfast support for The Terry Fox Foundation, our volunteers, our donors and most of all, to each member of our family, from the very beginning has been a valuable and enormous contribution to the successful growth of the annual Terry Fox Run both across Canada and around the world", stated Judith Fox-Alder on behalf of the Fox family. Terry's father Rolly and Terry's three siblings, Fred, Darrell and Judi are responsible for electing board members. Further to this, the Fox family is delighted to announce the appointment of Bill Pristanski, Jim Gabel and Ara Sahakian to the TFF Board. The addition of Bill, [...]

Statement on the Death of Dr. Anthony (Tony) Pawson

By | 2017-01-26T11:00:21+00:00 August 12th, 2013|Media Releases|

Statement on the Death of Dr. Anthony (Tony) Pawson We wish to express our profound sadness and loss over the death of Dr. Anthony (Tony) Pawson. Dr. Pawson was a leading cancer scientist at Mount Sinai’s Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto, Ontario who was revered worldwide for his seminal, transformative and innovative work in signal transduction. He has helped to advance cancer research and research in other diseases for his understanding of how cells communicate. His untimely death is a blow to our entire Canadian cancer research community and he will be deeply missed. Tony and his team were extremely successful in forging new and innovative advances in cancer research, and it is in this capacity that he led a long-standing New Frontiers Program Project Grant funded by the Terry Fox Foundation and the Terry Fox Research Institute. He was funded by the Terry Fox Foundation for over 25 years, and currently held a grant awarded in 2010. Tony was the recipient of many prestigious scientific awards and among Canadian researchers was regarded as a potential recipient of a Nobel Prize in medicine for his groundbreaking work. He was awarded the Kyoto Prize (“the Japan Nobel”) in 2008. The Signal Transduction Society in 2010 presented its new honorary medal to him as “one of the founding fathers of protein - protein interaction research in cell signalling ‘for the discovery of protein interaction domains and elucidating their essential roles in the transmission of cellular signals.’”1 Dr. Pawson and his team discovered the Src Homology 2 (SH2) domains in the mid-1980s and the field subsequently expanded massively. While we mourn his loss, we know he has left us a rich research legacy. We remain confident those who are following in his footsteps will find continued strength and inspiration in their [...]
