J.R. embodies the message of the Phoenix Society: helping burn survivors everywhere get back to living. He used his platform to share the Phoenix Society’s mission with fellow survivor Jenna Bullen, paying it forward in the hope that others might continue do the same. Tonight and Tuesday Jenna will again be in the DWTS audience representing the Phoenix Society and cheering him on for all us!

Below are some testimonials from those that have been inspired by J.R.’s whirlwind journey.

“The journey of burns is a courageous one. JR Martinez is courageous as he lives each day with both physical and emotional pain, yet seeks life and hope.” – Susanne G.

“I am so proud of JR Martinez for his courage. In a time where most are judged by their looks, he has proven to all that it is not our looks that define us but what is in the heart and soul. I do not see the flaws but a incredible man . I am so proud of him.” – Betty L.

We look forward to Monday and Tuesday night because the real story is that J.R. will be dancing on the national stage in front of over 20 million people, showing the world that anything is possible and that our dreams and aspirations cannot be stopped by a burn injury – we can thrive again!

I think we can all VOTE for that!
