More thoughts on the passing of Betty Fox

I
have been very saddened by the death of Betty Fox on Friday…. In
1989, I had a life-threatening cancer tumor, and probably would not have
survived – if not for cancer research done since Terry's Marathon of
Hope. I continue to be interested in everything related to Terry Fox…
In 2005. Here is a link to my blog stories about Terry Fox and Terry Fox
Runs I have participated in: http://www.gunghaggis.com/blog/TerryFox

I am particularly touched by Douglas Coupland's words… “she was a mother for all Canadians.”

Coupland has written the book “Terry” and is also currently working on the new monument for BC Place Stadium… which was also the site of Betty Fox's last public appearance.

the
2005 documentary Terry Fox: 25 Years of Legacy was produced by Moyra
Rodger, who also produced the 2004 Gung Haggis Fat Choy television
performance special. check the video clips here: http://www.outtosee.ca/clips/index.php
