 Anthony’s Hero – October 2012 – March 2013

Khaled Khatib agreed to carry the Torch Of Life for his new Canadian friend Anthony Socci. 29 year old Anthony was in desperate need of a kidney transplant. Khaled offered one of his. When Khaled found out he could not give one of his kidneys, he decided to walk from Ottawa to Toronto in the coldest month of the year February. On February 1, 2013, Khaled started from Ottawa at Parliament Hill. . Khaled was pleading to find a live donor for Anthony and he was getting a lot of media attention and people were responding.

Khaled kept a secret from us, he was suffering with Pneumonia, and walked a marathon a day in freezing temperatures. On February 8 on his way to Brockville, he collapsed, and we brought him to the Brockville Hospital. Frank Apuzzo took his place for 3 days, until Khaled recovered & resumed his walk from Belleville to Toronto where he joined Anthony's father and Khaled's father at the finish line at Queen's Park. He joined Anthony the next day. Among many activities along the way, on the highway near Perth Khaled & George sang O’Canada live on webcast to 1,000 kids at Sick Kids Hospital.
