'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Emmy Award-Nominated Actress Meredith Baxter
Date:1/28/2009

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Each Sunday throughout February, Sharing Miracles, a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients, will feature television actress Meredith Baxter, who starred as mother Elyse Keaton on the hit sitcom Family Ties. Sharing Miracles now airs on nearly 250 television stations across the United States.

She has also appeared in more than 50 made-for-TV movies and has earned four Emmy Award nominations.

However, her most important role may have been in the 1994 CBS movie My Breast, in which she played breast cancer-stricken journalist Joyce Wadler. Speaking in this month's episode about the role, she says, "When Joyce was diagnosed, she was ferocious and strong in her fight."

Her research into that role became, as she says, "a guide for later," when in 1999 she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. "When I was first diagnosed, I was in a kind of fog myself, so the only way I knew to act was how Joyce had behaved."

Like Joyce Wadler, she chose to fight her cancer. "It wasn't a sobby, 'Feel sorry for me' attitude. It was, 'Hey, what's going on? How do I deal with this? Don't patronize me! Talk to me! Give me some answers!'"

Baxter acknowledges that she was fortunate to have been diagnosed with extremely early-stage cancer, and guided by her strong attitude, she was successfully treated and is today cancer-free. However, though her cancer is gone, the lessons that she learned still resound, and she
