As my 6th Gist cancerversary approaches, I realize that the two most important things in my life now are Hope and Thanks. Hope is for a cure for all of us Gisters, and a prayer for many more days ahead of us. Thanks is for the love, support, and prayers from my family and friends, the doctors that care for us, and the diligent research conducted every day that is getting us closer and closer to that cure. Someone once said “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is the present.”  God’s gift to us all.  “Rejoice and be glad in each day”. Life, ……sweet and beautiful in spite of GIST.
