She was misdiagnosed for a long time before finally getting the awful diagnoses of ovarian cancer. While the book talks about this, it is her humor and honesty that shines through! She tried everything that was available at the time , proven and non-proven, to overcome her disease, but in the end the disease proved stronger than her will to live.
The interaction with her husband, Gene Wilder, and their love for each other shines through on every page. He stood by her and cheered her on at every turn. In the end, her lasting contribution to women all over is the awareness of the symptoms of this disease and Gilda's Clubs Worldwide.
It tells her life story with many photos, including her early comedy days, her courtship and
marriage to Gene Wilder, their travels and life together. But there is a very serious side to this
book: that is her delayed diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Since I was treated for the same disease, it
particularly interested me...and I highly recommend Gilda's written journey with ovarian cancer; a disease often not found
until it is very advanced and difficult to treat. Women everywhere should applaud Gilda's strength and bravery
as she went through treatments in the 1980's for ovarian cancer, and although she did not survive it,
her story is one that is helpful to all of us. Her husband Gene Wilder stayed by her side and along with her
friends and little doggie provided her with much love and compassion. Gilda & Gene used comedy and their sense
of humor to cope with cancer and I really applaud them for that.
It's Always Something is recommended for everyone. I thank Gilda (and Gene) for telling her story which touched
me very greatly.
It made me miss them both.
I highly recommend this book no matter if you or someone you have has had this miserable disease. She manages to make it a heart warming memoir.
Rest in peace, Gilda - you are missed.
What an amazing, talanted, respectful, hero.
