12 year old Travis was diagnosed with spina bifida as a baby but he hasn’t let that hold him back. He has discovered a passion for tennis and dreams of being in the American Paralympic team when he’s older.

What an inspiring young boy Travis is, I am sure we’ll see him at the Paralympics in the coming years.

Will you be watching the upcoming Paralympics?

  • Go Team Travis! What an inspiring young man.


  • Go for it Travis. I’m sure you’ll get there with that sort of determination. Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the Paralympics because I was working a nightshift. You don’t get much coverage for this but I heard they did quite well.


  • Watched the para-Olympics on and off – but the best thing for me was the ticker tape parade held for them when green and gold ticker tape being thrown down from office buildings over them. About time they were applauded on coming home like that.


  • I love this. So inspirational. A truly great kid who won’t let anything stop him. There’s obviously nothing he can’t do with will and determination. Go Travis. Awesome, uplifting and positive story. I didn’t watch the Paralympics. It seemed once the Olympics finished, there was less coverage devoted. I did see the highlights on the TV news, but that’s it.


  • It’s uplifting to see articles like this. I hope he realises his dream!


  • Hope his dreams come true.


  • Go do Travis !! You’re a star already !

    • And keep dreaming !! Dreams are important for memory consolidation and conflict resolution and may help with mood regulation as well.


  • If this is his dream, I really wish that it will become reality!! :-)


  • Good luck to Travis reaching your goal.


  • I’m sure Travis will reach his goals.


  • Go Travis. You can do it. I can’t wait to see you succeed
