Sophie Quiedeville’s battle against cancer
Mathieu Kassovitz wanted to talk about the fierce battle that his colleague led against cancer: “Sophie was a friend met by chance in the cinema. She was the stage manager on Hate and then on Assassin(s). She gave everything she had for the films and for the teams who had the chance to work with her. For years, she had been fighting cancer, it was the only battle she did not win. Thank you Sophie, no one will forget you, you changed our lives”. She is not the only one who has been affected by the disease since currently, the influencer Caroline Receveur is in the middle of a battle against breast cancer. If she underwent a mastectomy on November 14, 2023, she announced bad news on November 28, 2023 on her account Instagram : “The tests showed that there were a few small cancer cells remaining in the tissue which were removed during my mastectomy”. Despite resuming chemotherapy, she prefers to focus on the positive: “As the lymph nodes are not affected, I am still very happy with the analysis results and am focusing on the positive”. A fight which is not over but which we hope she will win.
