GIST Patients in the News!

In recent weeks, two of our GIST patient community have been featured in the news …

PAWS-GIST patient Rachel Gilbert was diagnosed when she was 15 years old. In December, Rachel marked 20 years since her diagnosis with a daily video in the run up to her 20 year “cancerversary” to raise awareness of the need for effective treatments for PAWS-GIST patients.

Lee has raised significant funds for GIST Cancer UK and other charities supporting those who are vulnerale, whilst also being treated for GIST cancer himself!
