Terry Fox's mother, Betty Fox, died June 17th at the age of 73. Her family said she died peacefully -- surrounded by love. For more than three decades, Betty Fox kept her son's cancer-fighting legacy alive by organizing runs and raising funds. In September of 2010, the year the Marathon of Hope would mark its 30th anniversary, Betty Fox said the spirit of her son lived on in the many people who continued the Terry Fox Run. (Terry Fox Runs are held annually in 28 countries and had so far raised more than 550 dollars million for cancer research.)
