Each one of our members has a unique story to tell, but they all reflect the intrinsic courage of those who face the challenges of cancer head on, with dignity, strength and passion for life. Our 2018 holiday campaign, “Faces of Courage,” kicked off on #GivingTuesday.
We shared the stories and celebrated the courage of Jason DeLorenzo, Liz Skree and Eve Evidon. While we didn’t share the stories of every single one of our patients, we celebrate you each and every day here at the LRG. We thank all of our donors who contributed on #GivingTuesday and throughout the campaign to help us raise over $130,000.
Together, as a community, we have made an impact on the lives of GIST patients by helping ensure their survival. We have more than doubled the survival rate of GIST patients since we became a formal nonprofit in 2002. Thanks to our generous donors, we will continue to provide research, patient support & education, and advocacy to help ensure the survival of GIST patients in 2019 and beyond.
