For the first time ever, a new opportunity is in front of us this holiday season. A collection of Terry Fox supporters have presented us with “Challenge Canada 150”: each gift that comes to the Foundation between now and the end of the year will be matched up to $150,000.
Terry himself was inspired by children and in fact, it was his time spent in the pediatric cancer ward that first motivated his Marathon of Hope. Pediatric research projects, such as Terry Fox PROFYLE (Precision Oncology For Young PeopLE), are one example of a program that will benefit greatly from your doubled gift. This project focuses on children and young adults who have been told they are out of treatment options, and aims to give them another chance.
Children like David, who at the age of three was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Because of generous donors like you, we are delighted to report that today David is an avid runner, Star Wars fan, animal lover and…cancer free.
