Doctors told this former military man he’d never walk on his own again. They were wrong.

Arthur Boorman is a former paratrooper who was unable to walk without the use of two canes for over 15 years due to the toll military service took on his body.  Doctors told Boorman that this would be the totality of his life, and to accept his situation.  Boorman gave up all hope, and resigned himself to living a sedentary life gaining over 100 pounds.  One day he found a yoga program by the most unlikely of sources, former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page.  Since that day Boorman’s story  has turned from one of tragedy to triumph.
