David Charbonnet joined the Navy SEAL program and everything was fine, then a freak Navy SEAL training accident left David paralyzed from the waist down leaving him doubting everything.
In 2011, David and some friends went skydiving right before his first deployment and something went wrong with David’s parachute on the second jump.He had a 80-feet fall which broke his back and left him paralyzed from the waist down. Now all his dreams of being a Navy SEAL were shattered and David began doubting God’s will for his life.
David was being treated and rehabilitated at the VIP NeuroRehabilitation Center in San Diego. The clinic was dedicated in helping disabled military, veterans, children, and others who’ve suffered brain or spinal cord injuries or other debilitating conditions like stroke, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy. The dedicated staff and medical team at the center really helped bring back joy and purpose in David’s life.
David and his wife, Janet, serve at VIP today, where he is a big inspiration to all those around him.
