Christopher Reeve, famous for portraying Superman, passed away in 2004, followed by his wife Dana Reeve’s death from cancer less than two years later.
This left their son, William Reeve, without parents. Dana, known for her singing and acting, bravely battled cancer after Christopher’s death.
Despite her illness, Dana continued supporting her husband’s foundation, which aimed to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injuries.
She passed away at 44, leaving behind a legacy of resilience and dedication. William, now pursuing sports journalism, honors his parents’ memory by advocating for paralysis research.
In a touching letter, he encourages his younger self to find strength and pride in being true to himself.
