He lived six short months after his initial diagnosis. By the time doctors realized that Jed had metastatic cancer, after months of treatment for a sports injury, it was too late. This is typical of rare cancers; they don’t present like most common cancers. Even with consultations with doctors in leading cancer centers, Jed’s outlook was bleak. One night a few weeks before he died, after he learned that his latest treatment was ineffective, he asked “What will be my legacy?”
A legacy that contributes to the betterment of mankind. A legacy he would want … one not defined by cancer but defined by better outcomes. This foundation is the vehicle to help others from experiencing our heartbreak … This is something we can and must do.
With gratitude and respect,
Mark Taxel, Founder, Father & CEO
