After a three-year battle with cancer, The Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon passed away Monday at the age of 59.
Following his colon cancer diagnosis in 2012, Sam decided to use his fortune for good.
A lifelong animal lover, Sam famously saving an injured horse from ever having to race again.
In fact, it was his animal rights organization The Sam Simon Foundation that broke the tragic news via Facebook, saying:
