“I realize how fortunate I was to spend the first half of my life with a passion, thanks to my hockey career. It took me a while to realize it, but now I feel fortunate to have lived the second half of my life with a purpose.”
– Travis Roy
The dream goes from euphoric reality to tragic nightmare in a split second.
The life of a hockey player ends; the life of a quadriplegic begins.
Travis Roy: Quadriplegia and a Life of Purpose looks at Travis Roy’s search for meaning as a quadriplegic, and finding it.
