Travis Guy Lebel2

In a poignant profile shared by Jason Wolfer on March 12, 2020, Travis Guy Lebel’s resilience and determination shine through as he navigates life with Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA) since birth.

Travis’s journey with Ataxia began with early signs noticed by his parents, leading to years of medical inquiries and specialist visits.  

Despite the challenges, Travis remained undeterred, eventually seeking a neurologist’s evaluation to understand his balance and coordination difficulties.  After numerous tests and consultations, he received a diagnosis of an unknown subtype of SCA.

Throughout his life, Travis faced obstacles head-on, adapting to overcome them.  From excelling in sports during high school to pursuing higher education and maintaining a full-time job for over thirty years, Travis’s resilience is evident.  Even as Ataxia made work increasingly difficult, he continued to embody a positive attitude, eventually transitioning to long-term disability while maintaining his commitment to fitness through weightlifting and regular workouts.

Travis’s story serves as a testament to the power of resilience and adaptation in the face of adversity.

Despite the challenges posed by Ataxia, he remains steadfast in his determination, encapsulated in his motto: “Never Give Up… and Always Find a Way.”  Through his unwavering optimism and perseverance, Travis inspires others to embrace life’s challenges with courage and resilience.
