GoFundMe page set up for 'Gilligan's Island' star Dawn Wells

(CBS 58) -- Actress Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann in the 1960's television series Gilligan's Island, has fallen on hard times. 

So much so, her friends have started a GoFundMe campaign on her behalf.

Dugg Kirkpatrick launched the online fundraising campaign to help with medical expenses and IRS penalties worth nearly $200,000. 

As of Friday night, the page has raised about $145,000. The page says Wells lost her life savings in the recession. She also has medical bills from a surgery and accident that required hospitalization for two months.
