'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Emmy Award-Winning Actor Joey Pantoliano

WASHINGTON, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This month, Sharing Miracles - a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients - will feature Joey Pantoliano, an Emmy Award-winning actor, writer and producer who suffers from mental depression.

However, he also spoke of the change in his life now that he is successfully treating his depression through a variety of means, such as therapy, exercise and medication: "I like to say that I live with clinical depressi
