Gina and Steve Meyer, along with parents of Arlana Miller, Morgan Rodgers, and Tyler Hilinski — three other student athletes who died by suicide within the last four years — came together for a special segment on Today to speak about their children and how they are pushing for change while going through unimaginable tragedies. "The easy thing to do would be to stay home and cry all day," said Steve. "That's the easy way. We have to step up and try to help in any way we can."

"You do not get any information regarding your children."

To help all college students in honor of their daughter, Steve and Gina recently launched Katie's Save, "a movement for change in our University system" and "a mission to support students navigating dynamics of campus life that may be complicated with added pressures of academics, sports, performing arts and other activities." 18-Year-Old College Football Player Dies After Collapsing During Practice The Katie's Save movement's "initial effort for change is to implement a University Policy designed to offer students an option to enable and require the university/college to send a notification to a Designated Advocate regarding instances when the student is involved in a situation that could evolve into challenging circumstances where they may need guidance and support." The goal of the movement is to ensure the safety and well-being of all college students.

Gina also said her daughter "had been getting letters for a couple months" regarding the potential disciplinary action, and that the most recent correspondence "was kind of the final letter that there was going to be a trial or some kind of something." "This is the only thing that we can come up with that triggered something," she said, musing further, "There is anxiety and there is stress to be perfect, to be the best, to be No. 1." In a statement to the Today show, Stanford University said, "We are not able to share information about confidential student disciplinary matters. We as a university community continue to grieve with Katie's family and cherish our memories of her." Katie, the goalkeeper and captain of the Stanford women's soccer team, was 22 years old when she was found dead in her dorm room on March 1. Her cause of death was confirmed by the County of Santa Clara Medical Examiner-Coroner. "There is no indication of foul play, and Meyer's death was determined to be self-inflicted," the County of Santa Clara, California, said in a statement provided to PEOPLE.
