Former Army sergeant raising funds for hormone replacement therapy to treat soldiers with brain injury

 Fox News features Warrior Angels Foundation

In the last 15 years, more than 330,000 members of the military were diagnosed with at least one traumatic brain injury (TBI). The research field for TBI is expansive, but treatment can be both time-consuming and costly. For active duty troops and  service members transitioning to civilian life, growing waiting times and costs can prove devastating.

Sgt. 1st Class Andrew Marr, whose own career as an Army Special Forces Green Beret explosive breacher was cut short in 2006 after he suffered multiple TBIs, has made it his mission to help active duty soldiers and veterans dealing with TBI get the help they need, when and where they need it.

Andrew suffered a traumatic brain injury while in the line of duty, which irreparably damaged his body causing a hormonal imbalance. Hear Andrew's story as he went from a high achieving, successful special ops soldier who never struggled with anything to a depressed alcoholic with PTSD — and how he recovered.

Andrew was treated successfully and is now healthy and sober thanks in large part to Dr. Mark L. Gordon, a TBI specialist. Today, Mark and Andrew are spearheading the movement to bring proper medical care to veterans diagnosed with PTSD when in fact they may be suffering from TBI.

It can happen without warning: you slip in the shower and hit your head, a car swerves and hits you, a small stroke occurs and suddenly you can't speak, your mobility is limited, and your world shrinks. These are real-life examples of the often intractable effects of traumatic brain injury or TBI.

And thanks to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Mark L. Gordon and a handful of forward-looking physicians, there's new hope for the 1.7 million Americans afflicted with this condition.

"I would just have these bouts where I would be overcome with emotion and I couldn’t stop crying, I couldn’t control it," Marr told He began suffering from insomnia and distancing himself from his family and friends.

For Marr, who said he suffered from no symptoms prior to 2013, the answers did not come easily.
