Randy Travis met with Tennessee lawmakers to discuss stroke awareness. Travis suffered a stroke in 2013 and is still recovering.
Traivs and his wife, Mary, talked to the Tennessee Senate Health and Welfare Committee for 20 minutes. Mary said in the meeting: “I speak to family members and those in the medical field who are challenged with stroke patients to not ever give up. Don’t steal that hope, and believe there’s always another sunrise and that giant baby steps make a big difference.”
Senator Doug Overbey ended the meeting by saying: “You’re raising awareness, and that helps everybody in this state by stepping forward and being here with your testimony. Our love for you and your music will go on ‘forever and ever, amen.’”
