Mark's Prosthesis Cost

On October 4th 2017, I was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The same type that Terry Fox had, actually.
Due to the size, aggression, and location of the tumour however, I lost my right leg and now need a prosthetic (I have a few more months to go in order to get it, as my leg/stump needs to heal/shrink first).

A prosthetic leg can cost anywhere from $9,000 to $100,000+ in Canada, and even though I'm getting some help from the government to pay for it, there's still a long way to go to cover that cost.

If you want to help, but can't afford to donate, please check out Terry Fox's story at, it's incredibly inspiring and the Marathon of Hope needs to continue. Even telling your friends about it, or organizing a run in your area and donating to charity that way is a great way to help the cause.

Thanks for reading and checking out my project, I really appreciate it. 
Sincerely, Mark Steel.
