Why not change name of every road, bridge, school, library, park, post office when someone doesn't know where the name came from? #Gilda
When you die of cancer, people will forget you and your name will disappear. Great message. #GildasClub
It's not Gilda's Club anymore: Cancer group to nix Radner's name11/29/2012
We wonder what Roseanne Rosannadanna would say about this. Gilda's Club, a cancer support group named for "Saturday Night Live" star Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, is changing its name. The Madison, Wis., branch is the fourth to strip her name because basically they don't think Radner means anything anymore. "We are seeing younger and younger adults who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis" for whom the name Gilda Radner bears no significance, executive director Lannia Syren Stenz said. The facility will re-open as Cancer Support Community Southwest Wisconsin. The move has been roundly criticized on Twitter. For instance, actress Martha Plimpton tweeted, "This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard." [Source]
