I just had to read this book!

As a two-time cancer survivor...


....my first diagnosis being the same type of cancer as Terry Fox....


...osteogenic sarcoma...


...with a special GMRS endoprosthesis https://www.stryker.com/us/en/joint-replacement/products/gmrs.html


...INSIDE my leg...


....I am proud to say...


....that I am living proof of Terry's dedication so long ago, and the dedication of anyone who has contributed to cancer research since.


As many individuals, teams, volunteers, fundraisers, and donors raise money this month for the Annual Terry Fox Run (virtually) in schools or communities....


...I am, and will always be, so very grateful and inspired.

-Daisy
