The Life Raft Group’s GIST Day of Learning (GDOL) Michigan was hosted by Rogel Cancer Center at University of Michigan Health experts.
A GDOL is a free one day event to help patients and caregivers learn more about this rare cancer, find support, and enhance their knowledge base to help them navigate their cancer journey.
The Life Raft Group is thankful to those who so generously supported us in 2022 and we hope you continue to support our new initiatives in 2023. #thrivingtogether
