Some Reactions to Brian Keefer "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" Episode
What an amazing experience it was to watch last Friday night’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition episode!
Being able to help the Keefer family has been so important to all of us at HydroWorx.
Here are some of our employees’ reactions after seeing Brian Keefer’s story:
Matthew Foss, West Coast Regional Director:
“Watching Brian and the Keefer family on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reminds me of how lucky I am to work for a company that can impact people’s lives on a daily basis. Brian, you are such a strong man and an inspiration to us all. Keefer family, you are simply amazing.”
“Keefer family, you are simply amazing.” – Matt
Melissa Borak, Video and Media Coordinator:
“I never imagined working for a company that could change people’s lives. Brian Keefer, his family and the people at HydroWorx are an inspiration to me.”
“Brian’s story touches our hearts for so many reasons. A chance accident could happen to any of us, and change our lives in an instant. What gives Brian’s story such power is what happened afterward. The commitment and sacrifice of his father without hesitation or complaint. The determination of his brothers to include Brian in their activities. And, most of all, the indomitable spirit of Brian himself: his determination to walk again.
“To see the testimony of the two men on the show, both quadraplegics, and now walking, and their admiration for Brian made me misty-eyed. One cannot help be in awe of the will of men who would not accept their doctor’s verdict, and in their personal triumph provide an inspiration to everyone else.
“I can see why you wanted HydroWorx to be part of the Makeover effort. When I saw Brian floating on his back and, in the buoyance of the HydroWorx pool, able to move his arms, I cannot describe the astonishment I felt. You so want to root for this young man to succeed and regain the ability to move on his own. I am humbled by his effort, and grateful to have the opportunity to be part of a company that is helping him.”

Ben Grinnell, Midwest Regional Director:
“What an inspirational/motivational person Brian is! You can see it in his eyes and contagious smile that he has the will and drive to walk once again. Now with our HydroWorx pool at his finger tips he can shorten that rehab timeline greatly!”
