The Travis Roy Foundation was established in 1997 to help spinal cord injured survivors and to fund research for a cure. Inspired by Travis’ own story, the lifeblood of the Travis Roy Foundation has been the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations across North America. This generosity has made an immediate impact on the lives of many individuals with spinal cord injuries.
The mission of the Travis Roy Foundation is to raise money for cutting edge research to find a cure for paralysis and to provide grants to spinal cord injured survivors to purchase costly adaptive equipment. The advancements in technology and adaptive equipment have made living with paralysis a little easier. Unfortunately, much of this equipment is costly, and many spinal cord injured survivors and their families cannot afford it. Since it’s inception, the Travis Roy Foundation has given out hundreds of grants for wheelchairs, voice-activated computers, simple home modifications, and other much-needed equipment.
