Very sad.

Spider-Man/Pretty Woman producer Laura Ziskin has lost the battle to breast cancer at 61-years-old.

Aside from an extremely impressive film career, Ziskin was also one of the founders of the Stand Up to Cancer research movement, which is an initiative "intended to enable cutting-edge research targeting all types of cancer led by 'dream teams' of doctors."

Here's what Laura's Stand Up to Cancer co-founder Katie Couric had to say about her:

"Laura was one of the most courageous people I’ve ever known. Her fearlessness in the face of this relentless killer inspires everyone on the SU2C team to redouble our efforts to make cancer history."

Aside from her film producing career and her work with Stand up to Cancer, Ziskin was also the first woman to produce the Academy Awards ceremony on her own in 2002, and she produced the first-ever "green" ceremony in 2007.

Such an impressive, inspirational woman! She will be missed.

Our thoughts go out to her family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.
