Dwyane Wade grew up on the South Side of Chicago where poverty, drugs, and gangs ruled the neighborhood. Thanks to the sacrifice of his sister Tragil, Dwyane s life took another path when she took him to live with his father. Basketball helped Dwyane and his father bond. Through the support and advice of Wade s basketball coaches during his youth, he became a better basketball player and a better man. Dwyane is the first NBA player to win full custody of his children and he places fatherhood first in his life. The rest of his time is dedicated to his team the Miami Heat and his work with Wade s World Foundation, which helps others.
