THE STORY:

Jade Shutes wrote -

Diane Grandstrom is a mother whose son Eric was the passenger in a car when it crashed in September,1999. The driver, a longtime friend, was not injured but Diane's son sustained a severe traumatic brain injury. There was question if he would live, then if he would stay in a coma, as he was in a trauma center and then nursing home for over a year. Although unable to care for himself and needing 24 hr care, he has made considerable progress, in large part to pool therapy.

Eric has had an affinity for swimming since he was 8 months old when he learned to swim underwater during Mommy and Me Swim Classes. When Eric was four, he saved his 11 month old brother, Joe, from drowning.

Eric is happy and grateful to be alive. His mother Diane has sacrificed her own life over the past 16 years to care for her him. They would like to put a retractable dome over the pool at their home so that Eric would be able to use his pool longer than 3 months out of the year. The benefits from using the pool for that short time rapidly subside after the pool therapy is stopped. I hope you will help me help these two remarkable individuals.
