As many of you may know, Travis was born with kidney disease and has dedicated his life to educating himself about this illness. As a teenager, he recognized the benefits of acupuncture and a holistic approach to medicine and that ultimately helped shape his decision to attend the Colorado School of Chinese Medicine.
Since graduation, Travis has become an advocate for kidney patients and he recently visited Washington D.C. to speak on their behalf. Travis is currently working to start a nonprofit organization that will help others who are dealing with the effects of kidney disease.

Travis, I read the article in the KC Star and was inspired by your life since you have left Central High School! I wish a speedy recovery for you and for Taesha. You and your brother were such good Latin students!! Billy Burns was too!!

Travis- I just read your beautiful story in KC's INK! God is Good! I would love to meet you and Taesha after you are up and about, walking again. I have read the book Moonface by Angela Balcita- an identical story to yours, except the boyfriend gave his kidney to her. Travis, I would love to inquire further about your idea to bless dialysis patients with complimentary acupuncture. I would also like to share with you and Taesha about DPC and a new group that just formed here in KC called LAN which I am a part of both groups. My goal is to bring more awareness to organ donation, specifically kidneys, to the young adults. You can read about my personal "runway to a kidney" at carmensrunway.com. Do you have a blog? I would enjoy following your story of recovery and love with Taesha. Thank you for sharing your personal and touching story- You are a blessing! Warm regards, Carmen

Travis; I wish you only the best & for a complete healing. May GOD heal and bless you! The 69 Barracuda is a cool car and neat idea for raising needed funds. I bought a ticket and of course hope to win it. Take best of care.
