“Bear sustained an injury to his eye that could have caused severe damage to the pupil. Luckily, the branch only caused some scratching to the cornea and he is almost fully recovered.”

And according to the source, Bear did not put his own injury before that of his mother, Ami Brown, 54 – who he accompanied to Los Angeles, California, last week to undergo tests for cancer.

He’s been a trooper by taking his parents to the UCLA appointments,” the source told Radar.

Upon his return, Bear shared an update with fans.

“I turned 31 today!! It’s been a hard year! But I feel truly blessed to still have my Mom Dad brothers and sisters with me! Never take a moment for granted LIVE everyday to the fullest!! There’s a quote a friend helped me find! The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stand in moments of challenge and controversy!! Thanks!! everybody!! For being there for my family!! God bless!!,” he wrote.
