Former WWE star Chris Nowinski, who leads in CTE research was recently a guest on “Busted Open Radio”. During the interview, Mark Henry discussed his desire to donate his brain for research. Check out the highlights below, courtesy of WrestlingInc.
Henry On Wanting To Donate His Brain To CTE Research:
"I definitely want to go on record saying I am donating my brain to the brain bank. I hope that something good can come out of ya’ll having my brain, maybe it’ll help with figuring out how things work in the future that will be benefiting my kids and everybody else’s kids. I know you (Chris) have a beautiful young baby girl and we always want the future to be better for our families."
"I hope that people realize that this is something that is not weird. What would be hard I think would be what you just said: after someone nearly passes away, it is hard to ask their spouse for their brain for science. I am a donor, I hope that I can help somebody live if something tragically happened to me. This is another way that I’ll be able to give back when I’m gone."
