Come Join Carol & Phil in Verona Park, May 4th!
The Life Raft Group (LRG) began the GIST Do It fundraising walks at Life Fest 2018 in Miami to raise funds for GIST research, awareness, and education. In the year that I've worked with the LRG, I've seen this group contribute in amazing ways to patient survival and support, and real world evidence & data that is helping to change the landscape of GIST diagnosis and treatment.
GIST (gastrointestinal sarcomal tumor) is an extremely rare disease that affects a small population each year making it difficult to get funding for research and to develop new treatment options, but because of dedicated clinicians, researchers, pathologists, and patient advocacy groups, progress is being made.
Help us work move forward and find a cure by walking, either in Verona or virtually, or donating to the LRG. Please read more about the LRG at liferaftgroup.org, like us on Facebook, and be sure to upload photos of your walk to instagram (liferaftgroup), FB, or Twiter. #gistdoitnj
