Annual Report 2020

By |May 5th, 2021|

Our theme for 2020 was Hope. 2020 presented a challenge to us all, but most especially to our patients and caregivers who are seeking to survive this rare cancer. In 2020, The Life Raft Group needed to provide a lifeline to our community, and to offer them hope in the form of increased support as we navigate the challenges of living in a COVID-19 world. #GISTHope
