Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve were roommates at Juilliard where they studied drama and became lifelong friends.
Even before either had made it big in show business, they vowed that whoever did exceptionally well would be obligated to help the less fortunate one.
As things turned out, however, both had extremely successful careers.
But in the wake of Reeve’s crippling 1995 riding accident, Williams vowed to pick up whatever hospital costs Reeve’s insurance didn’t cover.
Eventually Williams also became deeply involved with Reeve’s foundation, The Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation (CRPF).
Williams was always by Christopher’s side throughout his incredible struggle with quadriplegia, even to the very end.
