The Life Raft Group has a simple focus: to cure a form of cancer — GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumors) – and to help those living with it until then.

The mission of the Life Raft Group is 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. To do this, we focus on three key areas: research, advocacy and patient support & education.
