Vernon Turner has such an inspirational story that Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Ciara and Russell Wilson are in the process of producing a movie about his life. Vernon's mother was raped by multiple men all at once, which is how she became pregnant with him. She ended up using drugs to cope with the pain and eventually lost her life as a result. Despite it all, Vernon was determined to make it to college and then the NFL to care for his younger siblings. On Thursday (8/5) at 8:00 pm Eastern Time, he will chat with The Unsealed community about his relentless attitude and what it takes to reach your dreams.
In the meantime, check out Vernon's letter to Gabrielle Union, who will play his mom in the upcoming film.
