Invited on the LCI set to present her latest clip entitled “The Phoenix”, Sophie Tapie returned, Sunday, September 19, 2021, to the countless supports given to her seriously ill father.
Suffered for four years from a double cancer of the esophagus and the stomach, Bernard Tapie is the “phoenix” of which his daughter speaks in his album “1988”, to be released on September 24th. As part of the promotion of her record, Sophie Tapie scours the trays including that of LCI, and does not fail to be questioned on the current state of health of her father. To get through this ordeal, the Tapie clan can count on the unwavering support of those who approach them in the street or on the networks. If the businessman and his tribe can be lucky to receive so much good vibes and strength, they also think of others. Patients who are not celebrities. “It’s amazing how they give it back to us, how kind they are to us and our family in general. And it’s even a little embarrassing because I think of all those who are alone“, began by explaining the singer.
“I, who took my father for chemo… We see them people, some are not accompanied. They’re on a chair with their IV and then on their iPad doing Sudoku or watching a Netflix series. They are not accompanied, they are not supported like us“, she continued, trapped between embarrassment and gratitude.
“We realize how lucky we are”
The young woman, who spontaneously nodded when Christophe Beaugrand said that the former president of OM was the spokesperson for all these French people, concluded: “I realize how lucky we are. It is really very important to underline it because we realize how lucky we are to have this support but sometimes it is almost a little embarrassing because… I who see the disease in the face every days and I see her through other patients, we realize that we are very lucky. But not everyone is so lucky.“At the latest news from last April, Bernard Tapie revealed in BFM TV that his cancer, after having reached the lungs, was now attacking the kidneys and the brain.
