Not sure if anyone has seen this but it's a pretty inspirational story. I encourage everyone to take a look at Matt's web site. He is a 30 year old with Muscular Dystrophy that has made his scuba diving dream come true. The folks we dive with in the Keys, Conch Republic Divers, helped with his first ocean dive.

I thought Matt had passed away a few months back? His story is an interesting one and thankfully he had the support of many.

Not only has he not passed away, but when I chatted with him recently , he is scheduled to go back and dive with Capt Gary in November. Hubby and I are part of a group of organizers of a Harley Davidson ride that donates to the MDA every year. This year we went over the 1 Million dollar donation level to MDA in 13 years. So he is my inspiriation!!!!
