"To honor the twentieth anniversary of beloved comedienne Gilda Radner's death from ovarian cancer comes a commemorative edition of her memoir, It's Always Something— featuring a newly updated resource guide for people living with cancer and a tribute by Radner's former colleagues at Saturday Night Live. As a cast member on the original Saturday Night Live, Gilda Radner created a compelling character named 'Roseann Rosannadanna' who habitually ended her routine with the line, 'It's always something,' which was her father's favorite expression about life. Radner chose the catchphrase she made famous as the title to her brave, funny, and painfully honest memoir: the story of her struggle against cancer and her determination to continue laughing. Gilda's Club, a network of affiliate clubhouses that seeks to provide a social and emotional support community to people living with cancer, was founded in Radner's memory in 1991. The name of the organization comes from a remark Gilda once made, that cancer gave her 'membership to an elite club I'd rather not belong to.' In partnership with Gilda's Club, It's Always Something includes valuable information for all whose lives have been touched by cancer and reminds us of the important place laughter has in healing. Told as only Gilda Radner could tell it, It's Always Something is the inspiring story of a courageous, funny woman fighting to enjoy life no matter what the circumstances. She died in 1989. Gilda's Club is distinguished by its unique philosophy and program, 'cancer support for the whole family, the whole time.' Learn more about Gilda's Club at" -- Description provided by publisher.
