The breakout star of Netflix’s docuseries “Cheer”, Jerry Harris, is thanking fans for flooding him with donations.
The Netflix show premiered this month and 18-year-old Jerry was the standout of the series. His positive attitude and hard work ethic, despite losing his mom to cancer, made him a fan favorite.
The show is described as, “This gripping docuseries follows the ups and downs of Navarro College's competitive cheer squad as they work to win a coveted national title.”
Jerry was open about the struggles he faced after losing his mother, Lizzie Bowman, to cancer. A group named “Cheer moms for Jerry” was launched to help raise funds for Jerry in 2016 and a GoFundMe was put together.
