GIST Shmist. Big things are happening for our LRG members, despite living with cancer. Pediatric GISTer, Sile Bao graduated from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ on May 19 and already started her first job at Princeton University in July. Fellow Pediatric GISTer, Ashley Young Vincent, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Lily on June 24. Ashley’s first, grandma Toni said, “Ashley was in control and weathered the pain like a champ.” And finally GISTer Mo Collins, of Parks & Recreation and Mad TV fame, married her devoted (and very hunky) partner, Alex Skuby on June 25 in a lovely ceremony.

These stories above show that a GISTer can do anything despite of their disease!
