Alistair Sinclair Mackett Hoy
4/10/96 - 1/6/2011
Our dear young friend, Alistair Hoy, died suddenly in January 2011. During the last 16 days of his life - from his diagnosis to his death - he continued to model the way, positively determined to participate in cancer studies, planning to volunteer at Sick Kids Hospital upon his recovery.
He spoke of his appreciation of everyday things like long hot showers, friends and family. He displayed a calm acceptance of his illness, and it’s disruptive and intrusive treatment. Even in his death, he forged ahead of us, on to his next adventure.
He inspired us to create this humble family foundation, serving as a constant reminder of our good fortune, and ability to give back to others in need.
