Feel Good Stories...Titanic Survivor!

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio...
not only do they look GREAT...they do GREAT!

Milvina Dean, Age 97

I love "feel good stories".... this caught me with such admiration for the leading actors of "The Titanic" Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. The only living survivor of the Titanic, Milvina Dean was only 9 weeks old when the Titanic capsized in 1912. Apparently she was having difficulty in paying for her nursing home and medical bills in Belfast, Ireland. Her father died when trying to save her mother and 2 other siblings during the tragedy. When Winslet and DiCaprio, along with director James Cameron were approached, they all contributed over $30.000 to allow her to stay in the comfort of her nursing home. The media love to report the scandal of stars...I heard this only quickly on the news ~ it made me look into it - maybe not headlining news....but certainly nice to hear and "koodos" to them!
