Review for Dive Pirates Foundation, The Woodlands, TX, USA
I am a Vietnam war era veteran, who became paralyzed for no apparent reason, 3 years ago. My life turned upside down. The disease I have is called Transverse Myelitis. Just turning 65, I felt like my options were limited, having become an incomplete quadriplegic. My wife and I heard about The Dive Pirate Foundation, and decided to apply. We were so happy to be chosen, but also hoping we could rise to the occasion. It turned into a life changing experience. The people that we have worked with in the Foundation have been so helpful and enthusiastic for our success! We just went on our trip to Cayman Brac, and the trip of a lifetime! We have returned with such a sense of accomplishment, a love for scuba diving, and the undersea world. Thank you Dive Pirates for this wonderful gift!!!
