Default Re: Triano & Terry Fox

I was almost in tears watching that piece on Fox. He is truly one of the most underrated Canadian heroes of all time.

I have worked in addictions counseling and working in the streets with IV drug users, sex workers, homeless people etc.. and I never found the work rewarding because it always felt like these individuals were harming themselves in a way. And I know it's wrong but it would make me angry.

That is why I'm going back to work in oncology and palliative care to help people dying of cancer. I haven't really been affected by cancer on a personal level, and I am extremely grateful for that. But people like Terry Fox truly inspire me to live life to the fullest, because that god damned disease can consume you at any moment..

Let us all remember the courage and strength of Terry Fox and what a great human being and Canadian he was.
