TICKETS & INFORMATION - TargetCancer’s 2nd annual fundraiser unfolds this Thursday night at Boston's Royale. Founded in 2009 by Cambridge resident Paul Poth, TargetCancer promotes the development of lifesaving treatment protocols for uncommon cancers. Through fundraising, outreach, and advocacy, TargetCancer supports cancer patients while also funding research initiatives at the forefront of cancer treatment — efforts that treat the individual as well as the disease. Performances this year include Grant-Lee Phillips, Dean and Britta, and Will Dailey & The Rivals.
