Editor: A new hero has “run into my heart.” His dream of a world without cancer knows no frontiers.
Terry Fox, a young man whose age stopped at 23, has been a Canadian hero for more than 30 years. His stories impress me deeply. Nothing can prevent a “human being” to conquer cancer, just as nothing could prevent Terry Fox to run with his stubborn determination.
“Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.” These words from Terry Fox are turning into reality. More and more people come into action to respond to the great plan.
On Sunday, Sept. 15, I joined the Terry Fox Run with my family, to run for my new hero. I also hope that there will be no more cancer, no more disease in the world.
