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.

I will be sure to keep in touch with anything we are looking to promote. Right now, it's our Terry Fox Training Run, taking place in two weeks. Information can be found at www.terryfox.org/Training_Run.html
