JR MartinezThe Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors board member and burn survivor is a finalist on tonight’s season-finale of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Along with partner Karina Smirnoff, J.R.’s dancing moxie has earned him high praise among a national audience, but his courage and inspiring message has affected millions.

J.R. embodies the message of the Phoenix Society: helping burn survivors everywhere get back to living. He used his platform to share the Phoenix Society’s mission with fellow survivor Jenna Bullen, paying it forward in the hope that others might continue do the same. Tonight and Tuesday Jenna will again be in the DWTS audience representing the Phoenix Society and cheering him on for all us!
