“I remember seeing Terry Fox on TV when he started his Marathon of Hope. To know a young man on one leg made it halfway across our country was extraordinary and his efforts have united Canada with so many runs done in his name.
My wife Helen and I began volunteering for the Terry Fox Run in Richmond in 1986. That’s when I really learned firsthand about the Foundation’s commitment to grassroots fundraising, maintaining a low cost to raise a dollar, and investing in the best researchers across our country.
Not long afterwards, Helen was diagnosed with a form of cancer that required research to find more treatment options. After Helen passed away in 2012, and after surviving my own battles with cancer, it became more important than ever to me, to seriously considered where my money would be directed after I passed. As a legacy donor, I control where my money goes and I want to support the future of cancer research at The Terry Fox Foundation.”
