The Charter of Paris against Cancer was signed on 7th December 2008 in the Salon Belle Epoque at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, in the presence of His Serene Highness Sovereign Prince Albert II of Monaco. This Charter was created by Professor David Khayat and signed on 4th February 2000 in the Elysée by President Jacques Chirac and UNESCO.

Association pour la Vie - Espoir contre le Cancer, the Moonwalk painting in tribute to Michael Jackson.
