On November 21, The University of Notre Dame and Boston College meet for the historic Shamrock Series football game at Fenway Park.

But two days before, ND and BC alumni communities, among others, will gather at Fenway Park for another reason: supporting the critical cause of funding rare cancer research at A Night to TargetCancer: The 6th Annual TargetCancer Foundation Gala.

What do these events have in common? TargetCancer Foundation founder Paul Poth, who was a graduate of Boston College in 1991, and Notre Dame Law School in 1994.

In 2007, Paul was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a deadly form of cancer that lacked treatments and received little research attention simply because it was rare. Faced with a staggering challenge, Paul did what so many other graduates of his alma maters had done before him: he set out to make a change. He founded TargetCancer Foundation, funding the most innovative research into rare cancers to ensure that other patients might face a brighter outlook.

Though Paul passed away in 2009, the organization that he left behind has allowed his dream to thrive, providing hope for those fighting rare cancers.

It doesn’t take a million dollars to make a difference! Research and treatment options for rare cancers are so far behind that every donation is a game changer, and you can help by joining our Fenway Gridiron Fundraising Challenge to raise $10,000 for TargetCancer Foundation before the historic game!
