When the US National Health Services in 2014 told a then-pregnant Gemma Nuttall that she had only 6 to 12 months to live because she refused cancer treatment to save her baby's life, the 29-year-old felt her life was falling apart.
After Nuttall gave birth to a healthy baby girl, doctors said there was nothing more they could do for her. The cancer had spread to her brain and lungs.
But the determined mom discovered a "wonder clinic" based in Germany that offered immunotherapy treatment - but the catch was the enormous cost.
Then Nuttall received a life-changing email.
Winslet had read about Nuttall's story and had her assistant send Nuttall an email saying she and Titanic co-star Leonardo CiCaprio wanted to help.
With Winslet and DiCaprio's support, Nuttall succeeded in raising £337,504 ($468,118 US) to pay for the treatment.

After a dozen treatments, Nuttall has been given the all-clear following two MRI scans.
Nuttall and Winslet have yet to meet in person but are planning to see each other soon.
"I have my daughter and she's only three, I want to see her grow up," Nuttall said.
"I just want to thank her for saving my life."
