When Vicki Gunvalson joined forces with the cancer charity Kill All Cancer, many fans questioned her motives and wondered if she of all people should be involved with a cancer charity.
It turns out that Vicki’s involvement with Kill All Cancer has ended after heavy backlash from fans. “I just shut it down because there was a lot of naysayers out there. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be criticized when I did it from a good place,” Vicki told Entertainment Tonight. “And it wasn’t my charity. I was just a spokesperson for it. So it wasn’t mine.”
Earlier this season, Vicki took to her Bravo blog to explain why she initially got involved with the Kill All Cancer charity.
“The reason why I entered in the insurance industry at 29 years old, was because I wanted to help people and to be able to support my two children as a single mother. That same passion for helping and guiding people is the reason why I chose to become involved with the Kill All Cancer charity. Why wouldn’t I? I was approached by a team of professionals to make a difference in people’s lives through insurance products, donations, and to be part of a charity that can help people who are suffering from cancer. I’ve lost so many friends and family members from all different types of cancer and will fight for the cause and a cure. With my platform, you people reading this, and my friends, the best way to turn a negative into a positive for me is to use my voice and make a difference.”
I don’t think Vicki should publically be linked to any cancer charity because it just doesn’t look good considering her attachment to her former boyfriend’s cancer scam. However, I think it’s great that Vicki wants to support finding a cure for cancer, so I suggest she privately supports cancer charities and donate her time and money outside of the public eye.
