Alia Coleman, a Pediatric GISTer, has known fear, and works at overcoming it daily. She is an inspiration to us all. This video was used as part of a presentation on fearlessness at the USA Gymnastics National Congress.
Alia was diagnosed with wildtype GIST in 2013. With the same spirit of determination she displayed when competing in gymnastics, she has endured aggressive treatments and has refused to let GIST stop her from living life to the fullest. She is currently a college student, and a gymnastics coach.
Her mother, Marie Coleman, shared the video with the LRG, and we, in turn, share it with you as inspiration.
