Buster Medeiros’ Life Journey
Buster Medeiros currently lives on Maui along with his life partner Beverly, the two of them having moved to the Valley Isle from Oahu in 2013. In high school at Saint Louis, he was more or less your average student with some athletic ability which he put to use playing football, soccer and running the hurdles in track.
That all changed in an instant in 1973 during his junior year of high school during a football game against Punahou, a helmet to helmet collision resulted in him suffering a C4/5 spinal cord injury which left him a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down.
Listen to Buster share his story of overcoming his disability through his life journey and how painting became the center of his life with the help of the love of his life.
“It was almost as if painting was becoming second nature to me,” he says. “The result, without my even being aware of it, was that I was beginning to develop a unique style of my own. It was at this point that I came to the realization that painting was something I might be good at.” View Buster’s art gallery here – www.theoldmangotreeartgallery.com
