Egyptian actress Summaya Al Ulfi will be traveling to Paris-France in the upcoming couple days to undergo surgery after she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The actress expressed her hope that the operation will be a successful one and she will be able to return to life in no time. 


According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Summaya’s immediate travel has caused the director of the TV drama series “Kanari Wa Shurakah” (Kanari and his Partners), in which she stars in alongside her ex-husband Farouq Al Fishawi and Lucy, to halt the filming of the scenes until she returns from Paris safely and in good health. The actress had underwent several tests in Egypt at first, and her doctors advised her to go to Paris to have the surgery done. 


It was revealed that the actress’s son Ahmad Al Fishawi will be accompanying her to stand by her side throughout her recovery. Summaya called on everyone to pray that the operation is successful and she returns home in the soonest time possible. 


Al Ulfi had previously confessed that she had spent the best years of her life with her ex-husband Al Fishawi, and greatly regrets their divorce. The actress added that if she had been wiser and as experienced in life matters in the past as she is today, her marriage might have survived. Sumaya said that she still holds high respect for Farouq and despite their past, they have remained good friends. She noted that if it wasn't for her immaturity in the past she would have enjoyed living a very successful marriage that might have been for life. –
