WASHINGTON, D.C. - There are new developments in the story FOX 5 first brought you about a Redskins cheerleader left disabled by a seasonal flu shot. Now, Desiree Jennings is adding a boost of star power to her cause.
An organization founded by actors (Generation Rescue*) Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey is so touched by Desiree's story that they have reached out to offer not only words of encouragement, but the organization's support.
Desiree Jennings' struggle is getting worldwide attention.
"It's been unreal," Jennings told FOX 5. "I didn't think anyone would even care about my story. People are sitting there crying and I can't understand why..."
* Our sponsor GR was co-founded by J.B. and Lisa Handley. Jenny and Jim joined forces with GR and have continued the fight for vaccine safety and vaccine injury advocacy.
