Lena Al-HusseiniLena Alhusseini of the Arab-American Family Support Center

Lena Alhusseini joined the Arab American Family Support Center as Executive Director in April 200after a number of years at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), where she served as international outreach project manager on issues of child protection, abduction and child trafficking.

Prior to joining NCMEC, Alhusseini worked for the Gateway Battered Women’s Shelter in Denver, Colorado where she developed the Shelter’s children’s program and worked with immigrant populations including Arab-American women and children.

Before coming to the U.S., Alhusseini served with a number of international organizations around the world on issues pertaining to child protection and human trafficking, including USAID and UNICEF.

Most notably, she established the Jordan River Foundation’s child protection unit under the direction of HM Queen Rania Al Abdullah. That organization was the first in Jordan to address the issue of child abuse.

Born in Jerusalem and raised in Saudi Arabia and the UK, Lena is of Palestinian origin, and is truly a global citizen.



Saranne RothbergSaranne Rothberg of ComedyCures Foundation

Saranne Rothberg is a woman with a simple goal — to help you find joy in your journey. Saranne launched The ComedyCures Foundation, a 501(c)3 human service organization, from her chemo chair in 1999 as an outgrowth of her personal experience with the healing power of a comic perspective. She and her daughter discovered that therapeutic comedy served as a great family coping strategy as they dealt with Saranne’s early stage IV cancer diagnosis. Today, Saranne is cancer-free and has taken ComedyCures’ life-affirming work to ill patients and families throughout the US and world. AOL just featured Saranne on their homepage as an "AMAZING MOM" of 2010. 


Saranne has helped almost 650,000 people at almost 700 live events rediscover their funny bones through her motivational, inspirational, laughter-rich performances and unique therapeutic productions. Oprah features Saranne as her "Hero" in her book, "Live Your Best Life". CNN regularly features Saranne as their expert on Happiness, Laughter, Hope & Health! She can be heard regularly on ComedyCures Laugh Talk Radio on AM 970 The Apple Live in NY and helped launch the United Nations Global Campaign to UNite to End the Violence Against Women.


In March 2007, Saranne designed and produced The ComedyCures Laugh About, a therapeutic entertainment event for critically ill children in the Pediatric Intensive Care, Epilepsy Monitoring and Cancer units at HUMC. She produced and hosted the reunification Homecoming event for The US Marines from Iraq in 2006. She also created a intimate program for bombing victims from Israel.


Her smash hit "ComedyCures Laughing Lunch LIVE" is going on its sixth year and serves adult patients and caregivers from every medical population, human service agency and socio-economic group. Seven talented performers unite with great food and sponsors for an award-winning interactive experience.


She has a multi-year request list for appearances and keynote addresses but she always finds time to take one more request. Saranne's ComedyCures 1-888-HA-HA-HA-HA LaughLine® reaches as many as 4,000 people per month. Approximately 60,000 of her playful Wellness Joke Book pages have been created and circulated around the world, including delivered to the troops in the Middle East. ComedyCures serves diverse audiences of all ages.



Partial proceeds of the event will help support The ComedyCures Foundation

The ComedyCures Foundation tickles funny bones! We bring joy, laughter, and therapeutic humor programs to kids and grown-ups living with illness depression, trauma and disabilities. Through large and small scale therapeutic comedy programs, we entertain and educate patients, families and caregivers about the power of a comic perspective and the positive benefits of laughter on the body, mind, and spirit. "Yes, laughter is great medicine!" Love, laughter and hope are communicated in every aspect of our unique programs.


and The Arab-American Family Support Center 

AAFSC provides comprehensive social services to Arab-American immigrant families and children as they adjust to a new culture and navigate American laws and cultural norms. AAFSC addresses language barriers, encourages positive leadership, and promotes a stronger and more united Arab-American community.
