The Life Raft Group (LRG) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. LRG has a simple focus: to cure a form of cancer – GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor) – and to help those living with it until then. To do this, we focus on three key areas: research, patient support & education, and advocacy, which lay the foundation of our mission to ensure the survival of GIST patients through a comprehensive approach connecting individual patients’ needs, the worldwide community of GIST advocates and the global health and research environment.


Search GIST science publications page for peer reviewed journal articles in PubMed, science articles from the newsletters and selective references. Pamphlets in different languages and LRG e-newsletter can be downloaded at the website.
