A support group for Italian GIST patients has been formed, as announced October 18 at a meeting of oncologists in Italy.  L’Associazione Italiana GIST (A.I.G.) has a website at this link:  

Anna Costato, director of the new group, is also a member of GIST Support International.  She stated "I do hope that many Italian Gist patients (apparently there are as many as 788 Gisters in this country) can be reached in future months and benefit from this initiative, especially those who are not familiar with foreign languages and have been feeling isolated and alone so far."
