  1. Such an amazing story. Thank you—Travis, his parents, and his foundation for your generosity, vision, and inspiration to give hope and help to the quadriplegic community!

  2. Thank you for covering Travis Roy’s death and legacy. I came to BU in 1993 and was very moved by learning about his injury and paralysis. I had learned over the years some about his living independently and becoming a public speaker – how he was able to advocate and inspire others. I was happy to learn hear more about the important work of his foundation and the beautiful legacy of this scholarship and professorship. My condolences and deepest respect to his family.
