A new public service announcement promoting the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors will be part of J.R. Martinez’s story tonight on EXTRA and ABC.com.
After last week’s amazing dance on Dancing with the Stars, J.R. and Jenna Bullen, who was in the audience, shot a Public Service Announcement for the Society. J.R. Martinez is a burn survivor and a member of the Phoenix Society board of directors and Jenna has attended the Phoenix Society’s World Burn Congress in the past.
The PSA was developed when Martinez met Jenna Bullen, a burn survivor on Dr. Drew’s Lifchangers show (to be aired Oct 18th). Inspired by her story, they decided to pay it forward and make the PSA on behalf of the Phoenix Society. Bullen, 15-years-old, was burned at age three with burns over 90% of her body. She was J.R.’s guest on last week’s Dancing with the Stars.
You can find the broadcast of the special in your local market via the EXTRA web site.
The PSA will be available on the Phoenix Society website (www.phoenix-society.org) tonight!
