The Life Raft Group wishes to thank all of our members who participated in this year’s Holiday Campaign. Though it is still underway (look for final results in the next newsletter), this important campaign has raised over $47,000 to support our patient education & support, advocacy, and research to find a cure GIST. In addition, this yearly fundraiser has become vital in raising awareness about GIST. This year, we chose the lighthouse as our theme as a symbol for hope and survival. GIST survivors throughout the world depend on us to move forward in our quest to cure GIST and help those living with it until then.
It’s not too late! You can still send out cards to your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues. Remember, you are not only raising funds to help fight GIST, you are raising much-needed awareness about this disease.
