Terry Fox – a great example 

He was born July 28th, 1958. I first heard of him a few years back, but didn’t really pursue it. In 2012 his name began popping up again. I used Google and YouTube to find inspiration like I had never known. Terry had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. His right leg was amputated. He embarked on a run across Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer. He ran for 143 days and covered 3,339 miles. He died on June 28th, 1981. Terry was steadfast and had an attitude about his situation. He would not think of himself as disabled.
