This September, we are going to participate in the Walk to Find a Cure for GIST.
GIST stands for GastroIntestinal Stromal Tumor. It is a rare form of cancer that there is no cure for. What you might not know is that Cathy had surgery to remove such a tumor in 2018. Fortunately, surgery went well and all was removed. However, due to the risk of recurrence, Cathy is now on a chemotherapy treatment, which she will most likely need for the rest of her life. Unless a cure is found!
This walk supports The Life Raft Group, which is an organization that works hard to raise funds to find that cure! They offer support and education to patients as well. To learn more, please visit liferaftgroup.org.
Please consider making a donation to help get us closer to a cure. Or, you can join our team and together we can walk and enjoy the day on Sept. 26, 2020.
Thank you for your support,
