— Stars of new Bounce TV series “Mann & Wife” launch PSA to help raise awareness for St. Jude —
Memphis, TN — Celebrity entertainers David and Tamela Mann, noted supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, recently received the St. Jude Star Award at the Entertainment One (eOne) post-Stellar Awards celebration at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer, sickle cell disease and other life threatening diseases.
Their most recent support includes a public service announcement video aimed at raising awareness for St. Jude filmed on the set of the Manns’ new original Bounce TV series “Mann & Wife,” which premieres Tuesday, April 7 at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. CT). Bounce TV, the nation’s first-ever and fastest-growing broadcast television network designed for African-American audiences, airs on the digital signals of local television stations. The 30-second PSA, features St. Jude patient Martavion, an outspoken 7-year-old who began treatment at St. Jude for sickle cell disease shortly after his birth. Even while facing this chronic illness, his personality is free-spirited and outgoing. He has never met a stranger, is a car enthusiast and loves playing outside with his cousins.
Thanks to the support of friends like the Manns, St. Jude families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
