Keshia Knight Pulliam is using Instagram to reach out to her 1.9 million fans in support of a good cause. The actress shared an eye-opening post encouraging fans to help fight cancer with the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.


As a mom, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam is completely smitten over her four-year-old daughter, Ella Grace Hartwell, so she is passionate about matters affecting children's health and livelihood.

The "The Cosby Show" actress was so moved by the mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to fight childhood cancers that she took to Instagram to encourage her fans to join the cause.

While dressed in a red T-shirt with the words "WE WON'T STOP" printed in white lettering, the beautiful Pulliam looked right at the camera while pointing at the bold letters. Her caption read:

"Let’s work together to make sure no parent has to lose their child to cancer!! #StJudeWontStop until no child dies from cancer."


Pulliam, who rocked wavy black hair, bright red lipstick, and stylish jewelry on her fingers, encouraged her fans to support the mission by purchasing the red T-shirts.


Besides Pulliam, fans will join celebrities Tim McGraw, Yara Shahidi, Michael Strahan, Jennifer Aniston, Miranda Lambert, and others who have all shown support to the organization.



By the time Pulliam welcomed her only daughter, Ella, in January 2017, she and Ella's father, Edgerton "Ed" Hartwell, had already ended their relationship after being married only a few months.

The former football player even questioned Ella's paternity after he accused Pulliam of being desperate for a baby and insinuating that she was unfaithful during their short marriage.



Despite the heartbreak, Pulliam was enamored of her daughter, who inspired her to be stronger and brought joy into her life. The actress often features Ella in sweet posts on Instagram.

Now that the little girl is growing, she's already thinking of becoming an actress like Pulliam, who shot to fame as an Emmy-nominated child star when she was only six years old.



Pulliam doesn't mind her child pursuing a career in the film industry, especially since Ella is already so exposed to other actors like Brad James, who is Pulliam's fiancé.

The "House of Payne" actress told Madame Noire that James and Ella get along famously and love each other, which made her romantic relationship with him flourish even more.
