DIVEHEART FOUNDATION
November 13, 2012

I am a divemaster who was trained by DiveHeart to be an adaptive buddy and now assist with a local organization with the same mission. I've worked with both "new" divers and people who were returning to the water the first time since an accident. I have been moved to tears every time I have been present to see a "differently abled" person experience the sensation of weightlessness. For each of them, getting underwater has greatly diminished, if not eliminated, for the moment, their feeling of being "different." Each of these individuals is much more than their perceived physical limitation, and diving really brings that home. Instead of "the person in the wheelchair" he or she can become "the diver with the yellow mask". I've even known one who got to be "the diver who got up close and personal with the turtle" No one wants to experience life-limiting illnesses or injuries, and many who have them yearn to be "normal" again. Diveheart helps them do this! What a gift!
