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.
