YAI/National Institute for People with Disabilities

Sherri Shepherd’s son was born prematurely at 5 1/2 months. He was developmental delays and was told he’d never be able to run. The actress and co-host of The View found hope with YAI Network, an nonprofit organization that works with disabled people and their families, and connecting them with school and developmental programs.

Shepherd appeared on CBS’ The Early Show recently to promote YAI and their Central Park Challenge to raise money.

“The love that they showed my son, I can’t even describe that,” she said.
