Simpson Creator Dying Of Cancer

Simpson Creator Dying Of Cancer

( 4UMF NEWS ) Simpson Creator Dying Of Cancer: 

The producer of The Simpsons has decided to give his vast fortune away before he dies from colon cancer.

Sam Simon, 58, is spending his final months funding projects that feed homeless people and save animals from being killed in animal shelters.

Simon created the hit cartoon alongside Matt Groening in 1991. He technically retired from The Simpsons in 1993, but still receives tens of millions in royalties every season.

Now after being diagnosed with colon cancer that had spread to his liver and kidneys, Simon has met with financial planners to fund his foundation well after he dies.

He told The Hollywood Reporter that while chemotherapy used to make him feel better, those days are becoming more and more infrequent so now he wants to see the good use his money can do.

Simon has set up a food bank in Los Angeles that serves only cruelty-free vegan food, and turned his Malibu mansion into dog rescue where animals who are about to be put down by local shelters are taken, cared for, and then trained to be companions for the deaf. He said that the reason he enjoys giving to animals, and charities that work with dogs in particular, is because he is able to see the results quickly.

    I think this wonderful what you are doing, on the flip-side of this is it is making headlines. I caught your story on Yahoo and it got me thinking I needed to get my baseline colonoscopy done (I’m 54). A polyp was found and removed and my follow-up check-up is tomorrow. God Speed! Sam Simon <3
