To celebrate 30 years of fight against cancer, on Sunday April 8, 2018, Paris Pont des Arts is adorned with tulips! Come along and put a flower on the structure built by the Ecole des Fleuristes de Paris and buy a pretty tulip for the Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus.

30 years of fighting against cancer and still, the disease is still here! More than ever, we have to raise awareness to try and root out the evil from the planet! Is there anything more beautiful to support sick persons and their families than showing we’re all in this boat and sticking together while helping, as much as we can, the research!

And as French singer Laurent Voulzy says it oh-so well in his song “Le Pouvoir des Fleurs” [The Power of Flowers]:

Changer les âmes [Changing souls]
Changer les cœurs [Changing hearts]
Avec des bouquets de fleurs [with bouquets of flowers]
La guerre au vent [War windward and leeward]
L’amour devant [Love forward]
Grâce à des fleurs des champs [Thanks to wild flowers]

On Sunday April 8, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., goodbye lockers and hello flowers! Parisians and tourists are all invited to come and decorate with a flower one of the most legendary bridge in the French capital, very well known by romantic people: the Pont des Arts, on which students from the Ecole des Fleuristes de Paris set a wonderful floral structure especially created for the event.

In parallel to this sublime participative exhibition sponsored by Ville de Paris, don’t miss the exceptional sale of tulips and ribbon bracelets with the colors of the operation organized for the Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus in Villejuif.

And to share the operation, think about #destulipescontrelecancer or in English #tulipsagainstcancer!
