Gary Busey smiles, “Steffanie and I feel this is a miracle and a blessing to find a partner like Total Body Experts. Our being able to come together and fight this childhood heart disease as a team is as rare as the disease. We’re excited to make the public aware on a national basis how rare Kawasai’s is and have the strength of Total Body Expert’s Number #1 status to help fight the good fight and truly understand our journey to help kids like Luke.”

Erickson confides and continues, “Total Body Experts has partnered with Steffanie and Gary Busey and their to help fight Kawasaki’s Disease as our own VP of Sales, Jared Zinda, has a younger brother, Jacob, (now 17) who is a strong, healthy survivor of childhood Kawasaki Disease.”

Zinda further explains, “my entire family comes from the corporate sports and fitness world and are ecstatic to finally find someone with the visibility of Gary Busey to help educate people about Kawasaki’s. When my brother was diagnosed back in 1995 there were little to no resources or doctors who had direct knowledge of the disease and corrective treatments. I remember my father being on the internet for hours at a time trying to find information. It brings me great joy for my company to support a cause close to the heart of my family and me.”

Chief Financial Officer, Kevin Chu, finds the Busey connection a perfect fit as Chu in addition to his duties as financial guru at TBE also serves as the Executive Producer of the multi-award winning short film, EMIT, which received the “Best Screenplay” Award at Sundance 2012. Chu says: “Partnering with an Oscar nominee for Best Actor like Mr. Busey is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Total Body Experts to further explore our established relationship with the creative community in Hollywood both above and below the line.”
