19: I am so GRATEFUL to Eels on Wheels for this AMAZING, LIFE-CHANGING opportunity!! I was stretched, challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone in a loving and protected way. Their kindness, patience and gentleness helped me to face my fears and experience so much personal growth! I really LOVED being there. It was the MOST fun I've had since my accident 6 years ago. It really helped me to experience a new level of joy, happiness and independence that's been missing from my life. I really think the world of Chad and the Eels and the gift they give of their time and resources to teach us and enable us to dive. They have such a way of putting me at ease when I was doing my lessons and going on dives. They were patient and didn't make me feel stupid when answering my dumb questions. I really loved getting to know everyone. They are a fantastic group of people. I truly do hope to go on many more trips! Donate to Eels on Wheels www.eels.org
