In Memory of Barbara Walters

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on December 31, 2022 # News

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is deeply saddened by the passing of our longtime friend and supporter, Barbara Walters.

The legendary journalist interviewed Christopher Reeve several times, including in 2002 about his life and work following the equestrian accident that left him paralyzed. According to Variety Magazine, it was "one of Walters' most heart-wrenching celebrity interviews...Reeve’s session with Walters set his legacy as a determined survivor who used his experience to advocate for the rights of the disabled."

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Barbara, and we honor her legacy as one of the world's most revered newsmakers.
