Swimtastic!!! This is how swimming made a difference in life. Imagine how proud her first swimming instructor is of her. Life has purpose! Great idea Regina. I am all for it. How can we reach out to her? Can you do any leg work on that?

I am so glad she was able to save herself... makes me feel great about learning to swim at 49 its a life skill and a safety tool!

Wow that is an amazing story of determination and staying focused while in a horrible life or death situation.  If not for her ability to swim, she may not have been so fortunate.  Great idea to have her speak at the next convention.
