Meet Terry Fox, the brave young man who would not give up in his quest to give other cancer sufferers hope, despite all odds. Part of the beloved Little People, BIG DREAMS series, this inspiring and informative little biography follows the courageous life of Terry, who despite being diagnosed with cancer at age 17 and later losing a leg to the disease, was determined to do something special. A massive sports fan all his life, Terry decided he would run an epic marathon across Canada, aiming to raise $ 1 for every person in the country. After 143 days of continuous running (Terry ran the equivalent of one marathon a day in his journey) he had to stop running due to then effects of his cancer.

Although he died nine months later, he left behind a huge legacy - the annual Terry Fox Run is still a global event and $750 million has been raised for cancer research in his name. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical images and a detailed profile of this brave young man’s life.
