Date:1/4/2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Beginning in January, Sharing Miracles -- a 30-minute public affairs television program about health care that features compelling and inspirational stories told by patients -- will begin airing each Sunday in 16 cities around the country.

Hosted by former Congressman and cancer survivor Billy Tauzin, now the president and CEO of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), Sharing Miracles is designed to raise awareness about medical advances that improve the quality of people's lives. Sharing Miracles is produced by PhRMA's Communications & Public Affairs Department.

The new show will also help to spread the word about the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, a program sponsored by America's pharmaceutical research companies to help uninsured and underinsured Americans find access to the medicines they need for free or nearly free. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance has already helped nearly 5 million Americans.

The first episode features former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, who is battling colon cancer. Future programs will highlight two-time cancer survivor and motivational speaker Sean Swarner, who has climbed the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents in memory of cancer victims; "Leave it to Beaver" television star Jerry Mathers, who is fighting diabetes; North Carolina State University Hall of Fame basketball coach and breast cancer patient Kay Yow; syndicated television talk show host Montel Williams, a multiple sclerosis sufferer; Telemundo personality Mayte Prida, a breast cancer survivor; and pop icon and Broadway star Deborah Gibson, who has suffered from depression.
