Lucille Désirée Ball (August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989) was an American actress, comedian, model, and film studio executive. She was the star of the sitcoms I Love Lucy, The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy, and Life with Lucy. I chose Lucille Ball because of her healing gift of humor. She made us laugh even when things looked dismal.
Lucy was a loveable, ditzy, redheaded, character, that we still can watch on reruns of ’I Love Lucy’. But Lucille Ball was also a brilliant business woman in a male dominated profession. In 1962, she became the first woman to run a major television studio, which produced many successful television series such as Mission Impossible and Star Trek.
Many hospitals now offer laughter therapy programs as a complementary treatment to illness. Close your eyes and visualize people laughing across this county at an inspiring redheaded comedian. We love Lucy!
