Antwone Quenton Fisher was raised in institutions from the moment his single mother gave birth to him in prison. As a foster child, he suffered more than a dozen years of abandonment and physical abuse, until he escaped and forged a life on the streets. Just as his life was about to hit rock bottom, Fisher enlisted in the U.S. Navy-a decision that would ultimately save him. There, he became a man and discovered a loving family he never had. Through it all, Fisher refused to allow his spirit to be broken and never gave up on his dreams of a better day.
