Sam Simon is well-known for his work in television, most notably co-creating The Simpsons, as well as his devotion to several charities over the years.

It is with great sadness that we report the mogul has been given only 3-6 months to live, after recently being diagnosed with terminal colon cancer. Sam has decided to leave his entire fortune, which is estimated to be a whopping total of $100 million, to charity because he has no kids, no wife, and according to him, his entire family is already taken care of.

When The Hollywood Reporter asked Sam if he was frustrated with bad things happening to good people, he spoke on believing in karma. He also talked about Hollywood not being generous and his emergency operation.

Check it out below:

“No. I don’t think that’s what karma is. It never crossed my mind. But I don’t think the spirit of Hollywood is such a spirit of generosity. I think people really begrudge giving. In New York, it’s like that. A lot of charities spend a million dollars on a fundraiser to make $15,000. It’s a social swirl. They do some great stuff and then — it’s called mission drift. It becomes more about the parties. You know, I’m not married, and I don’t have kids. I had an emergency operation when I was septic, and I really did come very close to dying. My colon cancer perforated my colon. When I woke up in the hospital, even though I did have a will, it did become that much more important to me to set this stuff up for the future. And the Rockefeller Foundation has consultants who have been amazing. We found fantastic trustees. It’s something that will be living after I’m gone.”

This is a very sad moment for us and we sincerely wish, by some miracle, Sam’s fate could change.
