GIST Awareness Day is Monday, July 13, 2015
The Life Raft Group is excited for GIST Awareness Day and wants your help to celebrate! This day is an opportunity to stand in solidarity with those living with GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors)—an often neglected cancer of the gastrointestinal tract affecting 5,000 new people in the US alone every year.
None of our goals can be reached without you! Help us bring attention to this disease by educating your friends and family and joining our call to action. Support our efforts through fundraising, participating in advocacy efforts, holding an awareness day event or spreading the word through social media. No matter how you choose to celebrate GIST Awareness Day, you will be helping to shine a light on GISTers around the world- THANK YOU!
Our GIST Awareness Day 2015 Mosaic
Our inaugural GIST Awareness Day was a huge success, we know with your help 2015 will be even bigger and better! This year, we’re celebrating GIST Awareness Day by creating a mosaic made from #ShowUsYourRare photos from all over the world. To be included in the mosaic, make sure to post a photo or video to Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or the Life Raft Group Facebook page with the hashtag #ShowUsYourRare.
Help us collect 10,000 photos by July 13!
