Rushing home every night to catch the evening news to see where Terry Fox was, is what lifelong patron of hope, Sandy Schell-Kennedy remembers doing growing up. Now a 25-year veteran of the Marathon of Hope, Schell-Kennedy is the chair of the Stouffville Terry Fox Run, which is now the 5th largest in Ontario in terms of fundraising. Sandy was inspired by watching a man, just a year younger than herself, run across the country to raise awareness and hope for cancer research. After the disease was brought into her own life with the diagnosis of her nephew, Schell-Kennedy decided she had to do something. She explains how she took action, dealt with her own battles in life, and what inspired her to continue her journey.  Listen
