Why I Give

I was very close to my grandmother and her death from lung cancer devastated me. When Terry announced he had to stop his run, that was also pretty devastating, especially because the metastatic tumour had gone to his lung, as it had for my grandma. I want to make a difference for families and help future generations. Every gift in a Will can have an impact and it's just so important that we continue to honour Terry's legacy and fund cancer research.

– Vickie Key
