Our theme for 2020 was Hope. 2020 presented a challenge to us all, but most especially to our patients and caregivers who are seeking to survive this rare cancer. In 2020, The Life Raft Group needed to provide a lifeline to our community, and to offer them hope in the form of increased support as we navigate the challenges of living in a COVID-19 world. #GISTHope
We asked the amazing honorees of the first annual Women in Sarcoma Gala some personal questions to help us learn more about them, and their experiences. Have you RSVP'd for the Gala on Dec. 10 at 6PM ET? RSVP today for this free, virtual event, to be held in loving memory of GISTer Nikki Morales.
The Women in Sarcoma Gala, the culmination of the Women in Sarcoma series for 2020, will recognize medical professionals who have made an exceptional difference in the lives of GIST patients and their families. In addition, we will also honor two amazing sarcoma patients who have met the challenge their disease presented and have gone above and beyond to make a difference in the rare disease community.
The September webcast of Women in Sarcoma featured an interactive panel of women sarcoma experts sharing their expertise as powerful advocates working on behalf of those living with sarcoma.
The New Horizons GIST 2020 Virtual Meeting kicked off on Thursday September 10th at 8am EST.

The LRG was fortunate to get a few minutes with GIST specialist, Jonathan Trent, MD, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, who shared his experience with his patients over the past few months during the coronavirus pandemic.
