Date:4/2/2009

Program Celebrates Four Year Anniversary With Appearances by Actor Jerry Mathers

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 'Help is Here Express' bus tour will be stopping in Illinois the week of April 6th - April 10th at various cities throughout the state celebrating its fourth anniversary of helping more than 5.7 million uninsured and financially-struggling Americans get access to the medicines they need for free or nearly free. With the state's 8.6 percent unemployment rate now exceeding that of the nation (8.1 percent), the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is ready to help state residents who face layoffs and loss of health care benefits.

Jerry Mathers, who suffers from diabetes and is traveling with the PPA bus for two days in Illinois to raise awareness of this devastating chronic disease, is an American icon, best known for his portrayal of "Beaver" in the television classic, "Leave It To Beaver." Currently shown on TV Land and in countries throughout the world, "Leave It To Beaver" has made Jerry Mathers one of the most well-known actors in television history. He has also appeared in movies such as Alfred Hitchcock's "The Trouble With Harry," and as a starring character in the Tony-winning Broadway musical "Hairspray."

The PPA, a nationwide effort sponsored by America's pharmaceutical research companies, provides a single point of access to more than 475 patient assistance programs that help those who are uninsured or struggling financially. Nearly 200 of the programs are provided by pharmaceutical companies.

The "Help Is Here Express" bus will be at the following Illinois locations:
