Despite intense speculation, I am here today to testify: I am a “survivor”!
In 2001, I founded the first support groups in Paris and the Paris region as part of “CHOIX VITAL: Parole & Cancer”, an association under a 1901 law that provides support and information to cancer patients and their families. It’s important to fix that!
It is the French branch of Vital Options International, the largest association for cancer communication in the USA, and its president and founder is Mrs. Salma R. Shimil.

Today, I am living in my retirement well … I am in my thirteenth published work, and my play taken from one of them, “The Heavenly Lady and the Sensitive Devil” (Humanity Prize 2015 awarded by the Rotary Club) is being shown until February 9, 2020 at Studio Hébertot 78bis, boulevard des Batignolles in Paris 75017.
I recall, among other things, my cancer. “
