Marine Turned Comedian Says TBI is No Laughing Matter
Date:6/29/2009

NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Funny man Dave Rosner is used to playing center stage, but there's one issue close to his heart that is not a joke. Now, Rosner is committed to taking his message to the Internet to help find a cure for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

While 1.5 million Americans fall victim to TBI each year, a new drug called Oxycyte has given reason to hope. Rosner has launched a YouTube campaign to raise awareness for this possible cure.

TBI affects 30 percent of the injured veterans sent to the Walter Reed Medical Center. However clinical trials of this treatment from doctors at Virginia Commonwealth University have shown signs of cutting the effect of this brain damage by half. Rosner's mission is to convince the FDA to put Oxycyte on the "fast track" for approval.

This is a mission Rosner does not take lightly. Having served in two wars, he's seen firsthand the effects this horrible injury can have on a person. And like any good Marine, he won't stop until this mission is complete.

"My Fourth of July wish is to celebrate the cause of a cure for TBI," says Rosner. "I realize the FDA is burdened with hundreds of pending cases, but accelerating the approval course for Oxycyte would enable the drug to be in war zones within months."

Rosner served in the United States Marine Corps for over 18 years in both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He is now a stand-up comedian who has performed all over the world and has frequently returned to Kuwait and Iraq to perform for troops. He is also an actor, writer, public speaker and TV commentator.
