A Dream = Diego's Relentless Perseverance

Diego, 17, has faced everything in life - head on. From being hit by a car when he was a young boy, to having to live with a tracheostomy (tube used to help him breathe) for most of his life and later being diagnosed with sleep apnea. But Diego, never lost sight of his dream and has used his will and determination, as his allies, in facing all of life's challenges. One day, he wants to achieve his dream: to swim with dolphins. But in order to do so, he needed to get off his tracheostomy and learn to breathe on his own again. He made that his mission, with a deadline of his 16th birthday.
