Sherri Shepherd

The View co-host and comedian Sherri Shepherd learned she had type 2 diabetes shortly before starting her hosting gig. She says she denied the situation at first, but now puts her energy into advocacy and even asked the writers for her Lifetime sitcom, Sherri, to work diabetes into the show to raise awareness.
