Video! J.R. Martinez Reaches Out to Burn Survivors in New PSA

While taping an upcoming episode of "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers," burn survivors J.R. Martinez and Jenna Bullen found each other -- and were inspired to pay it forward.


With the help of "Extra," they are reaching out to fellow burn survivors through a public service announcement for the Phoenix Society, airing exclusively on "Extra" Monday (check local listings for stations and times).

Martinez, now a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars," was nearly killed when his Army jeep hit a land mine in Iraq -- the accident burned over 40 percent of his body. Jenna Bullen was only 3 years old when a garage fire burned 95 percent of her body.
