Today TargetCancer Foundation remembers our founder, Paul Poth, whose life was taken by cholangiocarcinoma at age 39 on this day ten years ago- August 22, 2009.

As with every patient, Paul’s life was so much more than his diagnosis and illness. He was a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend who lived his life with passion and compassion. When he learned of his diagnosis, he put his energy and passion to work by creating TargetCancer Foundation to remove the barriers to research and treatments for rare cancers like his.

After ten years we have seen great progress, and there is great hope. This hope is moving TargetCancer Foundation into a new and exciting chapter that will help to change the experience of a rare cancer diagnosis for future patients. But today, we step back to celebrate his life, his humor, his great mind, and his devotion to helping others that continues to inspire and guide our work every day.
