I was profoundly touched this week by what my son Timmy and his cousin Aurora did for me, but more importantly for those suffering by the ravages of cancer.
Two Kids taking action
Timmy is 12 years old, his cousin Aurora 7, and both participated in the Terry Fox Run, like the thousands of kids across the country do every year to continue the work that Terry started with his Marathon of Hope.
Algonquin Park, Aug. 2012
Earlier this year, Aurora cut her hair to raise money for cancer research, and in the process raised more than one thousand dollars.
They only see each other a few times a year
but remain very close
Terry ran for us. Lance rides to Livestrong.
We all do what we do to make a difference.
Some of us ride, some run...some walk... some paddle.
It doesn't really matter. What matters is that we do something.
And without saying a word to anyone, they sure made a difference in my life this week.
Thank You Terry for bringing cancer awareness to the mainstream.
Thank You Timmy and Aurora for making sure the good work he started continues.
And I will continue to ride with Hope and gratitude..... and do my
part to make a difference for others less fortunate.....
