Gena humbly confessed how grateful she was to her husband for all he did for her then.“The actor [Chuck Norris] noted how he became the luckiest man in the world…”During a previous CBS News interview, Chuck shared, “My whole life is focused on keeping her as well as I could.” He explained how far he went stating, “I’ve had to give up my film career.”The star and his wife took San Francisco’s McKesson and other drug companies into a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over the poisoning.
