Mission Statement

The mission of the Life Raft Group (LRG) is to ensure the survival of GIST patients while maintaining the quality of their lives. To accomplish this mission, the Life Raft Group devotes its efforts to four major program areas: Research and Treatment Surveillance, Information & Support, Patient Outreach & Assistance, and Advocacy.

Description

The Life Raft Group (LRG) is an organization that provides support, information and assistance to patients and families with a rare cancer called Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST). The LRG achieves this by providing an online community for patients and caregivers, supporting local in-person meetings, patient education through monthly newsletters and webcasts, one-on-one patient consultations, and most importantly, managing a major research project to find the cure for GIST.
