Dawn Wells “Mary Ann” Broke And Going Into Assisted Living Facility

I’ll be upfront about this: I LOVE Dawn Wells. I’ve met her several times, and she is the kindest, sweetest person you will ever meet. As nice and as pretty as Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island. More, even.

So I’m really bummed to hear she’s having some serious personal challenges. Dawn reveals that she is nearly $200,000 in debt after the financial crisis wiped her out, and after some health issues. It’s a shame that anyone should have go through this.

Dawn writes on facebook: “I thought I was taking all the proper steps to ensure my golden years. Now, here I am, no family no husband, no kids and no money. I’m grateful that God has given me so many friends and fans who care.”

We’re glad to report that fans have donated (as of today) $188,000 toward her medical and living expenses, and she’s reportedly moving to a facility that can help with her health issues.
