Paul Davis was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma with an underlying Follicular Lymphoma in 2011. A former 25 year veteran of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and member of the Newfoundland and Labrador legislature, Paul says it was the last thing he ever expected to face.
Paul wasn’t going to allow a cancer diagnosis to stop him from continuing his active lifestyle. Shortly after finishing his curative chemotherapy treatments in the fall of 2011, he was re-elected to the Newfoundland Labrador House of Assembly and elevated to cabinet. Paul continued his political career while undergoing two years of maintenance treatments and in 2014 became the 12th Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.
In the fall of 2018 Paul retired from politics but stepped up his involvement with LLSC. As a lifelong volunteer with a long history of serving with local, regional and national organizations, Paul was delighted to join the LLSC Board of Directors and enjoys being an active volunteer with the local Light The Night organizing committee.
Paul is particularly passionate when it comes to services and supports to patients and their families and believes in the benefits and value of much needed blood cancer research.
Paul and his wife Cheryl reside in their home town of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland Labrador
