The year 2022 was that of the fight against the disease for Florent Pagny who discovered, almost by chance, that he suffered from a inoperable lung cancer. A frightening diagnosis for the star who decided to fight in order not to let the disease have the upper hand.
A difficult announcement
On January 1, 2023, a new documentary entitled “Florent Pagny, a free man” will be broadcast on TF1. In this documentary, the artist obviously returns to this diagnosis which turned his life upside down and partially put his career on hold. The opportunity for the artist’s wife, Azucena Caamaño, to take the floor to discuss this diagnosis and its immediate consequences, as Midi Libre reveals: “There, he called me, he was preparing his funeral. I tell him wait, stop, it can be anything, wait until you know a little more, take the necessary exams, calm down”.
But the artist makes the decision to recover from this shock and take things in hand. He then records a short video message to announce his cancer, and launches into the battle, all with the help of his family and friends. We discover in particular that Patrick Burel helped him in this ordeal, just like millions of anonymous people. A precious help that meant a lot to Florent Pagny and his wife.
Today, Florent Pagny is doing better and new concert dates are already planned for 2023.
