We need to keep fighting the fight until cancer is no more.

 

Like many who have been touched by cancer, Jarrid was a Warrior and Hero in his fight. He was a Warrior in that he literally fighting the fight of his life in battling this terrible disease.  He was a Hero by never giving up the fight despite the surgeries and the chemotherapy. The support of many makes the journey of building awareness of orphan and other cancers much less daunting. The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, in support of the Alberta Cancer Foundation, is a life changing event and you can join Jarrid's Teamin two ways, by joining the Ride or by way of a donation.

YOU, too, can be a

Warrior and Hero ...






A hero isn't made

You can't train to be one

There is no hero factory

A hero is a small miracle that is born

From the start, they never give up

They aren't mean or brute or sadistic

A hero is loving

There are no muscles involved in that


All heroes have a steel hard core of determination

To fight it out to the bitter end,

Even if it brings pain

A hero admits they are scared

When everyone has abandoned hope, they push on

Refusing to give in, give up

A real hero fights the hardest battle, the one inside them

They bring the world its feet with their incredible words

They inspire people with their amazing story


A hero doesn't back out when the going gets tough

They embrace it with welcome arms

A challenging smile on their face

As they beat the living hell out of it

A hero never stops fighting

Even when they aren't aware they are doing it


Tragic as it is

All heroes die young

But do they let this stop them

No

Because a real hero never gives up

Even when they know what is going to happen one way or another

They take a deep breath

Raise an eyebrow and give fate a cocky grin

They scream at the top of their lungs


"IS THAT THE BEST YOU GOT?"

HERO
