A San Lorenzo resident and motivational speaker lost his wheelchair after a charter bus crushed it in Southern California recently.
Arthur Renowitzky can’t get a new wheelchair because the bus driver gave him a fake name and bad insurance information, according to an ABC 7 article.
In 2007, Renowitzky was shot and paralyzed during a robbery attempt in San Francisco.
After the shooting, he started rapping about overcoming adversity. Renowitzky also founded the Life Goes On Foundation — a non-profit organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for paralyzing spinal cord injuries. But most importantly, the organization teaches the youth about the dangers of gun violence and helping find a cure for paralyzing spinal cord injuries.
Without a wheelchair, Renowitzky cannot go to his speeches at juvenile halls or community events.
