What is your name?

Marc Wasserman

How long have you been living with GIST?

It will be 7 years in October

What was your first thought when you were diagnosed with GIST?

I am going to die!

What do you do?

I own a consulting firm to import Displays and Store Fixtures from China

How are you doing now?

New perspective on life and death and I have been very lucky. I am coping quite well.

GIST is called a “rare” cancer, how do you feel about that term being applied to you?

I feel special that I have a rare disease but it is a mystery to most people and doctors I try to explain it to.

I try to plan about living instead of dying. This is my way to remain occupied, optimistic, and focus on living!
