Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are for the good purpose while in the skin of their Titanic characters Jack and Rose crept.
The actors joined forces to make the life of the British Gemma Nuttall to save. The 28-year-old mother was pregnant when she was ovarian cancer. The story of the Nuttall grip Winslet in additional, as her own mother in 2017 died of ovarian cancer.
When Winslet last year on the internet looking for possibilities for treatments for the illness of her mother, met them on a petition of Nuttall, which is money collected for her own treatment.

“My heart broke. I found her gofundme page and I saw how much they needed to pick up. At that time there was but nine thousand pounds will be collected and I thought: ‘I can not let this happen’,” said the actress Monday in the program This Morning.
Dine with Rose and Jack
Winslet tried attention to the case of Gemma, and she succeeded to doing more to raise money, but it was not enough. Kate: “We came close to 200,000 pounds and at that time I thought: ‘it is time for my friend Leo to call.'”
DiCaprio was willing to work with and through his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation knew the two to three dinners to be auctioned with Rose and Jack, their alter ego’s from the movie Titanic. They pulled this whopping 1.3 million dollars, enough to the treatment for Nuttall to pay.
Nuttall got in This Morning the chance to Winslet to thank: “I want to thank you very much for all your hard work so that I the treatment could get that I so desperately needed. You saved my life and I just want you to know that.”
