Gary Busey Records Traumatic Brain Injury Month Special Message!

| Filed under: InspirationGary BuseyHealthSafety

A lot of people think Gary Busey is just some weirdo they've seen on The Apprentice, but they haven't heard his whole story. Yeah, he can be quirky, and parts of the video are no exception, but he always means well, and he has an important cause that's very close to his heart…

… or brain, we should say!

Gary was in a motorcycle accident in 1988 that killed him. He wasn't wearing a helmet, and he cracked open his skull. During the emergency brain operation, he literally died.

Of course, he was brought back, and we're glad that he's doing okay — and he's working tirelessly to make sure what happened to him doesn't happen to anyone else, especially those who might not survive!

Check out the PSA he's recorded (above) for Traumatic Brain Injury Month!

Gary Busey To Helps Others With Hearing Disabilities

Gary Busey To Helps Others With Hearing Disability

Gary Busey has decided it’s time to give back!

After getting hearing aids that correct the loss of hearing he experienced after undergoing brain surgery in 1988, Busey is ready to help others in the same way Marlee Matlin, the Oscar-winning actress who first identified Busey’s hearing loss, helped him.

Said Busey:

"Marlee Matlin said to me that it's not right to stop somebody from hearing so she sent me to Dr. Bill Austin, Starkey hearing aid in Minnesota and he outfitted me in one hour with this hearing aid.”

He continued:

"I had brain surgery after my motorcycle accident in '88 when I split my skull and it knocked a hole in my ear canal, making it smaller so Dr. Austin gave me these (hearing aids)… and now all five of my senses are working… Now I can help people with traumatic brain injury because I was the advocate voice that created the Traumatic Brain Injury Act that President Clinton signed in 1997. I'm very proud of that."

We like this. High fives to Busey!

"Gary is very grateful to his fans for their love and support. Steffanie and Gary thank everyone for their get well prayers for Luke."

Send positive vibes towards little Busey!
