Date:7/31/2008

ld, he suffered from attention deficit disorder and dyslexia, and his struggle to learn left him depressed. As he explains in this month's episode, "I failed second grade, and I suffered from terribly low self-esteem. I thought all of the kids were smarter than I was. My biggest fear was to go to school as a young kid because I was afraid that the teacher was going to ask me to read in front of the class."

Today, motivated by his own battles with ADD and dyslexia, he serves as an advisory board member for several foundations for the learning and mentally disabled, including the National Dyslexia Research Foundation and the Special Olympics.

Previous episodes of Sharing Miracles have featured Olympic Gold Medal-winning diver Greg Louganis, who is HIV positive; Emmy Award-winning actor Joey Pantoliano, who suffers from clinical depression; Leave It To Beaver star Jerry Mathers, who is affected by diabetes; pop icon and Broadway star Deborah Gibson, who has suffered from devastating anxiety attacks; and North Carolina State University women's basketball coach Kay Yow, a breast cancer survivor. Future programs will highlight Academy Award winner and patient advocate Marcia Gay Harden; NFL Hall of Famer, Super Bowl MVP and prostate cancer survivor Len Dawson; former Pittsburgh Steelers All-Star running back and asthma patient Jerome Bettis, now a commentator for the NFL Network and an NBC studio analyst for Football Night in America; and Emmy Award-winning television talk show host Montel Williams, who suffers from multiple sclerosis. Sharing Miracles is produced by PhRMA's Communications & Public Affairs Department and hosted by PhRMA President and CEO Billy Tauzin, a cancer survivor.

The new episode debuts August 3. Sharing Miracles airs on Sunday mornings - in 49 television markets, reaching nearly 45 million households - on the following network-affiliated stations:

WUSA-TV (CBS), Washington, DC, 12 noon-12:30 pm
