If you want to provide support, then of course, your thoughts, your physical or moral presence, that can bring the most. If you want to provide a material participation, then here are a few ideas.
For the ceremony, flowers were welcome, but I think – and I know that Carole would have agreed with me – that it’s a great occasion to materially support some worthwhile causes.
the Centre Léon Bérard is a great institution, that supported Carole and the rest of the family… Incredibly motivated teams, exceptional scientific, medical, but even more human… expertise, on behalf of a fight that is far from being won. Maybe it is a good destination for a donation.
I would also suggest the Hospices Civils de Lyon, a beautiful, multi-secular, institution in Lyon, which is currently in dire financial straits, and needs even more of your help.
More generally, I think it’s a moment to think to, and support, an equal-access, fair, non-profit oriented, health system, not only with money but even more with political involvement.
