The Life Raft Group

GISTs belong to a group of cancers called soft tissue sarcomas. Sarcomas are less-common cancers that develop in connective or supporting tissues. Sarcomas are derived from the general class of cells known as “mesenchymal cells”, found in bone, muscle, fat, cartilage, etc.

The Life Raft Group is global patient advocacy group dedicated to enhancing the survival and quality of life for people living with GIST through patient-powered research, education and empowerment, and global advocacy efforts. The LRG vision is to champion patient-powered science and drastically increase long-term survivorship for GIST patients throughout the world. Our community strives for each patient to have support, access to treatment, and to know that they are not alone.
