Travis Hamonic – Defender of Grieving Kids
Travis Hamonic is a defender for the New York Islanders NHL team. He’s good at defending his team. He’s also good at defending kids who’ve lost a parent. Why? It gives him what he did not get when his dad died of a massive heart attack in the middle of the night. Travis calls his loss “a defining moment.” Grief defined him as a man of prayer and vision for grieving children. Truly, tragedy to triump.
