"Have enough courage to start, and enough heart to finish"
Terry Fox- A Story of Courage
Courage is not the absence of fear, it is making something happen in spite of fear. Terry Fox, diagnosed with cancer at the age of 18, inspired a lot of people to have courage. His condition didn't hinder him from achieving his goals, it just made him try harder. He began the run across Canada- the Marathon of Hope. His aim is to raise money for cancer research, to help fellow cancer patients. Despite his prosthetic leg, he still continued the marathon with boldness but was stopped after knowing he has lung cancer. In 1981, Canada mourned of his loss. His short life gave hope to many people. He demonstrated courage. Terry Fox defines courage.
