We love our donors!

All we need is LOVE

Over the last 16 years, we have worked toward increasing patient survival and ensuring a better quality of life for GIST survivors. I consider it an incredible privilege to wake up each day to support GIST patients and caregivers. Though we have come so far, it is not always easy to see the direct results of your efforts, your donations, or your time.

The LRG has just announced a collaborative research project with Columbia University Medical Center to investigate a new approach for identifying the best treatment options for people with advanced GIST. This project has extraordinary potential for GIST patients and shows teamwork between a major research center and a patient group in action.

 And it would not be possible without your support!

Following the inspiration of the Cancer Moonshot Summit, this venture also presents a great opportunity to showcase the impact patient-powered science can make on cancer research

I wanted to thank you again and demonstrate how your contribution has helped to accelerate research and support the GIST community for years to come.
