FC: A True Hero... By: Makenna | Making Memories... | makeing memories... | Life is good..

1: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have cancer? What it would feel like? I think we all know someone who has felt all of those thingsTerry Fox. Terry Fox was born on July 28th, 1958, in | Winnipeg Manitoba. Did you know that Terry Fox’s real name is ‘Terrance” Fox? Unfortunately, Terry Fox lost his right leg at the age of 20 from a type of cancer called: osteogenic sarcoma. This cancer made him loose his right leg. After he had lost his right leg, he had to use crutches, but not for long, because he knew he would have to learn how to walk with one real leg and one prosthetic let. Not long after, he no longer needed crutches, and he decided to run across Canada on April 12th, 1980.

2: He ran a total of 5,373 km (3,339 miles) through Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. However, since the cancer was spreading to his lung, he was forced to abandon the course on September 1st, 1980, just north-east of Thunder Bay, Ontario, after running a total of 143 days! WOW!

3: Did you know that many Canadians and Hollywood celebrities also took part in this event and helped to raise raise over 10 million dollars? That’s impressive! At the age of 20, Terry Fox lost his right leg to a cancer called osteogenic sarcoma. He wanted to raise money for EVERYONE who had cancer, when he had cancer himself. Everyone was SO proud of what he had done, by raising over 10 million dollars! I bet that Terry Fox was proud of others for joining him and believing him and all the other things he did for himself, but most importantly others! That’s the life story of a true Hero!

4: Who do you look up to? I think Terry would say that he looked up to his family, because they were always there for him! I think everyone looks up to their family for many different reasons, but in Terry’s case, he had his family there, always believing him and to see and support him in all of his achievements.

5: A True Hero...

6: If you could choose a different career, what would it be? Why? I don’t think Terry Fox would choose a different career choose a different career, if he was given the option. What he did was a miracle, and by that | it’s pretty obvious that Terry Fox liked to run. If he ran 5,373 km (3,339 miles) then I think his career would still have to have been to run. Have you seen all the things he’s done for everyone? By raising over 10 million dollars. That's insane...

7: Why is Terry Fox a Hero ? Terry Fox was very brave. Why? Because he ran across Canada with one real leg and one prosthetic leg, now I call that brave. Brave can be tones of different things to people. Terry Fox is a leader for many different | reasons, he ran across Canada which demonstrates fitness, and showed people that going for what you believe in is part of life. Terry Fox got that far with his dream so now it’s your turn! Follow your dream!

8: He is a person with tones of honesty. Let’s say you were interviewing him, and asked a question that no one has ever asked him, Terry Fox would tell the truth about that question. That’s just the type of person he is. I believe that is what he would say. I chose Terry Fox for many of different reasons. Firstly he ran across my country. He also raised over ten million dollars for cancer when he had cancer himself and he is indeed... A True Hero!!!
