Losing Hope When I Suffered A Spinal Cord Injury
My name is Bruno Hansen. I was carjacked in South Africa 18 years ago and became paralyzed from the waist down. I had no insurance, no money, and lost my job as a surf yacht captain. I had no proper home, no hope, I was angry, and lived recklessly hoping to die.
Accepting My Spinal Cord Injury
After a few years of soul searching and rough traveling, I sailed through the Indian Ocean on a small sailboat and found myself, my strengths, learned my weaknesses, and then made peace with life. To date I have been filmed for various documentaries, I have a beautiful girlfriend, I am a 2x adaptive world surfing champion and I give motivational talks to various groups and organizations around the world.
I am currently consulting in building a SEAHABILITATION centre in Panama for those who need to find themselves after injury or physical impairment. I got to this point in life by spending plenty of time in nature and living tough. Never give up.
