Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is a rare cancer affecting the digestive tract or nearby structures within the abdomen. Because GIST is a rare cancer, we provide ways for GIST patients to become savvy about their disease and their options for medical care.
There are many ways to join our active community of patients, caregivers and professionals. Our listserv, phone pals program, facebook group, and GIST Summits provide avenues for fellow GISTers to connect and share experiences.
GIST Support International (GSI) is an all-volunteer group of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST cancer), family members, friends, and interested professionals. Our e-mail listserv includes over 1500 subscribers who form an online community to share information about GIST treatment and to support each other in living with GIST.
