Berry has 15 rehabs, 14 surgeries, and one night in which doctors only gave him 2%. chance of survival. He was hospitalized 4 years ago due to a ruptured colon that was as a result Opioid addiction. He was in a coma for two weeks, and took several months to recover.

They were understanding, patient. Like penguins, when one flock is sick, sick or injured, the rest support it. He revealed that the cast did the same for me.
