Pfizer Pharmaceuticals is offering Sutent in Touch, a program to support GIST patients on its drug Sutent.

The program is free and patients can sign up by calling (1-877-578-8368).

Sutent in Touch links patients to Oncology Certified Nurses by telephone, mail and e-mail, providing answers to questions about treatment and side effects. The nurses work together with patients to monitor their well-being while on Sutent. A journal is given to everyone who signs up, so that they can keep track of how they are doing.
