On September 21, the documentary Love, Gilda will be distributed by Magnolia Pictures to theaters across the country.
The film about the life of Gilda Radner, the first person cast to be on Saturday Night Live, opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story—including her courageous battle with cancer.
When diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986, Radner sought support from The Wellness Community in Santa Monica. She called for similar support-focused organizations to be available not only on the West Coast, but everywhere. In 1991, Gilda’s Club Worldwide was founded.
Today, CSC affiliates and Gilda’s Clubs are part of a global network that provides $50 million in free services for patients and their loved ones so that no one faces cancer alone.Director Lisa Dapolito shares how Gilda’s Club and the Cancer Support Community inspired her interest in Radner’s legacy. KTLA invited Julia Forth, Executive Director of CSC Los Angeles, to talk about how CSC and Gilda’s Clubs continue to serve patients in Southern California and around the world.
