'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Leave it to Beaver Star Jerry Mathers
Date:5/1/2008

WASHINGTON, May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This month, Sharing Miracles -- a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients -- will feature Jerry Mathers, childhood star of the hit TV show Leave it to Beaver.

Mathers is an American icon, best known for his portrayal of the mischievous Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver. Currently shown on TV Land and in countries throughout the world, Leave it to Beaver has made Jerry Mathers one of the best-known actors in television history.

Despite Beaver's seemingly perpetual youth, life caught up with Mathers when he was diagnosed with diabetes.

Speaking of his experience in this month's episode of Sharing Miracles, Mathers says, "You have to take control of your diabetes; you can't let it take control of you."

Now, Mathers works tirelessly as a patient advocate, using his celebrity to help spread the word to others: "I've been so blessed, and I've had so many good things happen to me, that if I can help just one, two, maybe even 1,000 people -- as many as I can -- it makes my heart feel good."

Speaking about the importance of early diagnosis and thorough treatment, Mathers adds, "You'll have a much better quality of life throughout your entire life, and it can be long and productive."

Previous episodes of Sharing Miracles have featured Emmy Award-winning actor Joey Pantoliano, who has clinical depression; former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, who is battling colon cancer; syndicated television talk show host Montel Williams, who suffers from multiple sclerosis; cancer survivor and mountain climber Sean Swarner; and breast c
