Never, Never Give Up...

Many of you will be familiar with the story of Terry Fox, the one-legged young man who set out to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research in 1980. He suffered a recurrence half way through his run and died about a year later. But his dream and legacy live on. To date over $400 million have been raised for cancer research through the "Terry Fox Run".
What you may not know is that in 1981 Rod Stewart and Bernie Taupin wrote a song as a tribute to Terry's "Marathon of Hope". It's called "Never Give Up on a Dream." (I thought you might like the theme Bruce!) You may also not know that today, July 28th, is Terry's birthday. He would have been 49 today had he lived.
I've posted a short piece on Terry's life and an inspirational video clip showing images of his "Marathon of Hope" to the music of Rod Stewart's "Never Give Up..."

Thank you for thinking of me. That was a very inspirational story about terry. I think i remember hearing of him, we were both born in 1958.That is also a great song by rod stewart.
We can't give up the good Lord gave us the ability to fight and fight we must against this beast.
Thanks again,
Be well
