Terry’s message…

On April 12, 1980 Terry Fox dipped his foot into the Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland, transforming the course of cancer research in Canada. The suffering he saw in the cancer wards compelled him to act. The Marathon of Hope is turning 40 years old and the message is as timely as ever. Terry asked every Canadian for a dollar. This week, we are asking you to give to cancer research, if you can. Terry stepped forward in 1980, we must do the same now.

Please give if you can

Cancer patients can’t wait for this global crisis to abate, nor can the researchers who have made it their life’s work to save lives. Thank you, Canada, for working every day to take Terry’s marathon across the finish line.
