#MakeLove — Sam Simon Donates For Animal Rights

Published on January 19, 2015

PETASimpsons co-creator Sam Simon has described his terminal colon cancer as the ‘most amazing experience of my life’, because he is surrounded by his loved ones and donating his estimated $100 million fortune to his passion – animal rights.

Given three months to live in 2012, Simon immediately decided to team up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) president Ingrid Newkirk, and dedicate his time to the rescue of maltreated animals and conservation.

Having defied that diagnosis’ original death sentence, Simon continues to push ahead and has also funded projects such as ‘Feeding Families’ to help with the underprivileged in inner cities.

And now, as he enters the twilight of his life, has declared himself never happier and finally at peace.
