Truly makes me proud to be a Canadian
16 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just a fantastic movie about a man who was so selfless and so generous in his pursuit of curing cancer. It just brings me to tears when I think about what he did and sacrifice, it's very touching and moving. He didn't do this for any personal glory, he was just a man who felt that he could do something to raise money for cancer research and try to help out those who were worse off than himself. Terry Fox is so great because he was wise beyond his years and was so unselfish. Most people his age aren't concerning themselves about changing the world ( Terry wasn't either but now this is an annual event), most are worried about more trivial things in comparison. This TV movie does a great job of capturing Terry's perservering spirit. A great movie that I recommend to anyone who wants to watch a great story about a real man.
