Sultan Jessa: Dream of Terry Fox lives on

Sultan Jessa: Dream of Terry Fox lives onHis dream lives on.

Yes, I am referring to the true Canadian hero Terry Fox.

“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.”

These famous words belonged to Fox, when he was raising funds across Canada for cancer research.

He wanted not only his dream but his main priority to defeat cancer to live on after he is gone.

Fox was diagnosed with dreaded bone cancer to his right leg in 1977 and had his leg amputated six inches above the knee.

While in hospital, Fox was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients that he decided to run across Canada to raise much-needed money for cancer research.

He called his journey the Marathon of Hope.
