There are 6 comments on Ethan Wang Was Told He’d Never Walk Again. He’ll Walk on Stage for Commencement

  1. Congratulations Ethan!

    You are an incredible person, a role model for managing tragedy, adversity, information and expectations as well as the value of perseverance, optimism, goal setting with constant re-evaluation and adjustment.

  2. Congratulations, Ethan. In addition to your wonderful, supportive network of family and friends, there have been many others rooting for you from afar. What a moment it will be when you walk across the stage.

  3. The parallels between Ethan’s story and Travis Roy’s story from over 20 years ago is interesting – both BU students who sustained a spinal cord injury during their time here as students. It’s crazy to see how far spinal cord injury rehab has come, but also how much we still don’t know. What an inspiring story!

  4. Great account of Ethan’s courage and tenacity as well as support from his family. Glad to see that small steps are resulting in giant achievements. And also congratulations graduating from BU!
