The Opportunity of a Lifetime
Remembering Terry and Rolly
Donna White, Terry Fox Foundation
hank you for your understanding Craig and for your kind words about Rolly.
He was a regular visitor to our office and it is hard to believe he will not walk through that door again with his silly grin and an old joke...he will be deeply missed.
As someone who watched Terry run across Canada, with pride and enthusiasm during that incredible summer of 1980, Terry soon became a hero for me and that is who I listed as my hero in my high school annual. He has also saved my life as almost 17 years ago I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.
To have the incredible opportunity to work
for The Foundation that bears his name, and to have a friendship with
his parents is something I treasure. I too have some great photos of
Rolly and they will be something I continue to cherish for a lifetime.
