The Young and the Restless and The Talk Team Up to Combat Multiple Sclerosis





Fans worrying Nikki Newman's (Melody Thomas Scott) multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis on The Young and the Restless might prove to be a death sentence for the Genoa City diva have missed the boat. According to insiders, CBS Daytime and the brass at Y&R were inspired to tell a courageous, powerful tale about a woman's battle against the disease, after seeing The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne dealing with her son Jack's MS diagnosis.

This past Friday, a PSA about MS, starring the Osbournes, aired during the episode of Y&R where Nikki revealed her diagnosis to the Newman family. Kudos to CBS Daytime and Y&R for using the medium to shed light on a disease that affects so many lives. The late Bill Bell would be proud! Click here to watch the PSA.
