On World Cancer Day, the story of Bullion's own battle against the disease.

 

Stéphane Bullion entered corps de ballet of the prestigious Opéra National de Paris at the age of 17 years old, all destined for a great career. Unfortunately, six years later, in 2003, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer at an advanced stage that put everything in question. Thanks to his will to live and his inherent need to dance, Stéphane Bullion took his illness head on and fought tirelessly to return to the front of the stage. His intense efforts, the presence of his companions and his fighting spirit were rewarded through his appointment as Danseur Etoile in 2010: a model of hope for all people affected by cancer.

To many decades of continued good health to both of them!

Thank you for these links -- he faced an incredibly difficult challenge and managed to get through it.  Extremely impressive.
