Olusola, paralyzed following a drive-by shooting at the age of 16, has become a leading community figure in helping to educate young people about living a violence-free life.
Olusola has devoted his adult life to helping young people – speaking to thousands of youth across the United States about the dangers of gun violence. He was diagnosed with cancer in December 2008.
