I want to be crystal clear: I don’t want anybody to stop giving donations to the Wellness Community or to Gilda’s Club. I don’t want this organization to lose support. It was, after all, a place of solace for Gilda in her last years fighting ovarian cancer.
Gilda was universally loved. She was known as a warm and caring person, and her early death from ovarian cancer in 1989 was shocking and terribly sad.
