Michael J. Broderick Makes Statement in Regards to Rock Star Bret Michaels' Health

LAC DU FLAMBEAU, WI--(Marketwire - April 24, 2010) -  Michael J. Broderick, Director of Marketing of Lake of the Torches Resort Casino in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin, upon hearing the news of the hospitalization of rock star and TV celebrity Bret Michaels with a brain hemorrhage, issued the following statement:

"I am shocked and deeply saddened to hear the news of Bret's recent hospitalization with a brain hemorrhage. I have hosted Bret a number of times here at Lake of the Torches, and apart from being a truly talented artist, he is a consummate professional. More importantly though, I consider Bret to be a good friend and member of our casino family. On behalf of the staff and management, I truly wish him a speedy recovery and our prayers go out to him and his daughters during this difficult time."

According to the AP, Bret Michaels is in critical condition suffering from a brain hemorrhage, his publicist said Friday. Joann Mignano confirmed a report on People magazine's website Friday that said the former Poison frontman was rushed to intensive care late Thursday after a severe headache. The report said doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
