    About Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research

    Paula and Geoffrey Takacs of Charlotte, NC founded the Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research in 2010 to privately fund novel research and raise awareness for this rare and complex cancer. Sadly, Paula lost her life to sarcoma in 2014, but they proudly continue her legacy. To date, the foundation has donated over $867,000 for research, making the foundation one of the most successful grassroots sarcoma foundations in the United States.


    As a not-for-profit healthcare provider, Levine Cancer Institute relies on philanthropic support to provide new and innovative research. This support is especially vital for advancements in rare cancers, like sarcoma, that receive little governmental research funding.  The Paula Takacs Foundation is a parter of Levine Cancer Institute, funding critical research projects needed to make scientific advancements and offer local patients new treatment options through clinical trials.


    To date the foundation has donated over $556,000 to Levine’s sarcoma research program.
