Before Terry Fox become a national hero, he was just a regular kid. But even then, his characteristic strength and determination were apparent and were the foundation for his friendship with Doug. The two first met at basketball tryouts in grammar school. Terry was the smallest - and worst - basketball player on the court. But that never stopped him. With Doug's help, Terry practiced until he earned a spot on the team. As they grew up, the best friends challenged each other and helped each other become better athletes and better people. Doug was by Terry's side every step of the way: when Terry received his diagnosis of cancer in his leg, when he was learning to walk - then run - with a prosthetic leg and while he was training for the race of his life, his Marathon of Hope. Written from Doug's perspective, this story shows that Terry Fox's legacy goes beyond the physical and individual accomplishments of a disabled athlete and honors the true value of friendship.
