Double Amputee hopes to Scuba Dive

Hi my name is Robert. On 4/7/2015 I was involved in a car accident. That was the day my life completely changed. After being pinned between two cars the trauma to my legs resulted in  both my legs needing to be amputated.  After being in the hospital for several weeks I hadn't realized what my new life would be like until I came home. I no longer was the independent person I was before. I needed help with the little things that one takes for granted.  I attended  support groups and spoke to others in similar situations. In one of my meetings I learned about a foundation which allowed people with disabilities to get certified to Scuba Dive. I never thought it would be possible for me to ever get back in the water much less Scuba Dive.  In 5/2017 I can proudly say I was able to get certified and in 6/2017 I did my first open water dive.

I would like to have another opportunity to experience another open water dive in June 2018. I'm asking for your support to help me to meet my goal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your support, 
Robert aka Captain Happy Feet
