Swimming Gave Terrence Keller a Second Chance at Life and Love


In 2013, a single car accident left Terrence Keller with a traumatic brain injury and legally blind. Before that day, he had been a school principal and active as a martial arts instructor.

His doctors told him it was unlikely he’d return to school as a principal or a teacher. Three years of physical therapy began with learning to recover his balance just so he could walk without assistance.

Although he was never a great swimmer, while doing therapy in the pool, he discovered a feeling of strength that set him on the path to regaining his confidence and his life.
