Scholastic Canada Biography: Meet Terry Fox
Illustrator: Mike Deas
The award-winning Scholastic Canada Biography series highlights the lives of remarkable Canadians, whose achievements and legacies have inspired and changed the lives of those that followed them.
Read about the remarkable story of Terry Fox, from the beginning: his love of sports as a child and teenager, his devastating bone cancer diagnosis, the hospital stay that inspired him to do something to raise awareness about this disease, the poignant moment he dipped his artificial leg in the waters of St. John's, Newfoundland, and the heartbreaking moment he ended his run. This was also the moment his truly inspiring legacy began.
Written by award-winning author Elizabeth MacLeod, this portrait of Terry Fox couples simple yet compelling writing with full-colour, comic-flavoured illustrations by Mike Deas that help bring this unforgettable story to life!
