When David Brown was 15 months old, he was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, which ultimately led to him losing his ability to see at the age of 13. After moving to St. Louis from Kansas City to attend the Missouri School for the Blind, Brown took up wrestling and goalball before focusing on track. He first realized his dream of being a Paralympian after winning an essay contest to attend the Paralympic Games Beijing 2008 in China.
