Nathalie Marquay’s widow: this homage to “the man of her life” of which Jean-Pierre Pernaut would have been proud

This Sunday, May 8, Nathalie Marquay wanted to pay homage to the man of her life by evoking his cancer. An important statement for you.

The struggle, again and again. On March 2, Jean-Pierre Pernaut died of the consequences of his lung cancer at the age of 71. He leaves three grandchildren, four bereaved children and a wife, they are also combative. Despite their immeasurable pain, it remains important for them to continue fighting this scourge of cancer. More than two months after this terrible loss, her wife is gradually trying to resume the normal course of her life, allowing herself more and more regular public outings. But that of this Sunday 8 May was more particular – and undoubtedly moving – than the others. Ever since Nathalie Marquay attended Télévie, a sort of Belgian Telethon whose funds raised are distributed for lobbying in the fight against leukemia and cancer in children and adults.

An event that necessarily finds a particular echo in our Miss France 1987 – who wanted to share a series of photographs taken on this occasion. Above all, she is delighted that at the end of this 34th edition of Télévie, € 10,039,185 was raised for cancer research. “I had to be there … also to pay homage to the man in my life“, the mother of Lou and Tom Pernaut esteems. Her mission was also that of”remind everyone that cancer is not taboo and that you should be screened regularly“.”An evening full of emotion and hope with the joy of seeing Nolwenn again, in excellent shape three years after his illness and of sharing strong moments with beautiful people like Elsa Esnoult and Christophe Willem“, Writes Nathalie Marquay.

Jean-Pierre Pernaut: “We have to face things to fight them”

The Pernaut-Marquay couple have long believed that cancer should no longer be a taboo. Thus, in 2018, the emblematic face of the 13 Hours of TF1 revealed himself to be suffering from prostate cancer. And after his operation, he had sincerely trusted in the consequences which had. “I stayed in the hospital for fifteen days because the operation is heavy and afterwards it is a bit complicated because we are at it a urinary catheter for a week or two is not pleasant“, He intervened Naked stars. And to throw with force: “It’s not a shame to go around in diapers for a few weeks. (…) You have to face things to fight them. Still“. This is also what he did when he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Throughout his struggle, he obviously could count on the unwavering support of Nathalie Marquay, who could understand him better than anyone else, since she herself faced this battle for life. In 1997, when she was thirty, Nathalie Marquay fought against leukemia.
