Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet Joined Forces to Save a Woman's Life

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet worked together to make sure that a mom battling cancer was able to have access to the life-saving treatment she desperately needed.

Gemma Nuttall was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer while pregnant and refused to be given drugs to treat the cancer as she would’ve had to terminate her pregnancy.

After her daughter Penelope was born, Gemma did everything she could to fight the cancer, but was told she eventually had just six to 12 months to live. She started a fundraiser to raise money for immunotherapy and that’s where Leo and Kate came in.

Kate heard about Gemma‘s story and teamed up with Leo to auction off three “Jack and Rose” date nights, which helped raise the £300,000 needed for the treatment.

Gemma is now cancer free and thanking Kate for what she and Leo did to help her.

“I can’t thank Kate enough. Without her donations, and the public’s, my story would be very different. We thought it was a wind-up, but then she called and I realized she was serious,” she told The Mirror. “I was so nervous but she asked me how I was feeling and how my ­treatment was going – she wanted to help. I told her I could never thank her enough and she told me not to be daft. She said she had read about my story online, that she had three kids of her own and had thought about what she would be like in that position. She said: ‘I just felt that urge to reach out to you, I knew that I wanted to help.’”
