The GIST Cancer Research Fund (GCRF) is an organization comprised of actual GIST patients or caregivers with family members who currently live with or succumbed to the cancer, on the Board of Directors and managing the organization. GCRF’s foundress, Tania Stutman, has passed her eleventh year as a GIST patient and strongly acts as Chairperson of the fund. All the members of GCRF are literally fighting for their lives or the lives of loved ones. 

Please download a copy of the GIST Cancer Research Fund brochure for a brief synopsis of the organization and GIST Cancer, GCRF Board of Directors, goals, events and research facilities.  

GCRF is about many things, all of which pave the way toward finding a cure for GIST. GCRF is about bringing together the GIST community toward a common goal, a goal that has become it's name, GIST Cancer Research Fund. GCRF is about keeping it simple.  Doing the up-front work necessary to find the GIST researchers and then make sure that your donations make a difference right down to personally delivering the checks and visiting the GIST researcher's labs. We invite you to read the letters, citations and even the speech by Congressman Benjamin Gilman (read the text below) that underscores, not only GCRF's efforts to "get the GIST word out" to help others, but the gratitude expressed by those whom GCRF has been directing your donations. GCRF is about finding a cure for GIST and will not stop until that goal has been reached! GCRF Board of Directors

SPEECH BY CONGRESSMAN BENJAMIN GILMAN Permit me to take a moment, before we begin the main portion of our town hall meeting, to recognize an outstanding resident of Rockland County. Three years ago, during a routine physical, this young ladys physician informed her that he had found something abnormal. After several tests, a tumor was found on her small intestine and after a biopsy, she was informed that she had a very rare cancer called GIST, Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor. With the assistance of Ephriam S. Casper, M.D., Chief of Medical Oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center she refused to give up and formed a foundation, named GIST Cancer Research Fund, to raise money for the research of GIST three years ago. In the three years in which GIST Cancer Research Fund has existed, entirely run by this courageous lady, it has earned several thousand dollars for the research of GIST
I would like to call Ms. Tania Stutman to the stage to honor her for the time and selfless dedication she has spent in founding GIST Cancer Research Fund and raising funds in hopes of eradicating GIST Ms. Stutman, if I may take a moment to commend you on your bravery in your fight against cancer. You have not only chosen to fight your cancer, but to take the fight to another level by founding GIST Cancer Research Fund. By doing so you have demonstrated your interest not only in self preservation, but in helping all those who now suffer from, and all those who may in the future suffer from GIST.Accordingly, I would like to present to you a certificate of Special Congressional Recognition in recognition of outstanding invaluable service to the community. ln addition, I would also like to present to you a personal check for your foundation. I sincerely hope that you continue your good works and wish you the best in a speedy recovery.

  6. This bag is actually gorgeous and great for the Louis Vuitton lover. I’ve a handful of conflicting thoughts on the BCBGMAXAZRIA Poem Print Canvas Tote, so bear with me here.The color is officially deemed Anemone, which can be the genus name of 120 species of flowering plants.A number of months ago, I got caught in a Katie/Suri paparazzi scrum on my stroll home from the grocery shop, and it seemed to me within the time that living that type of life really should be definitely isolating, possibly even dreadfully lonely.We reported on the Louis Vuitton Mahina when it was first released (dubbed the Louis Vuitton XL and XXL) and since then there has been Mahina mayhem.We took a tiny peek in to the polka-dotted planet of Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton two weeks ago, but now we have some new particulars (and photographs.The style essentially comes in the Fendi archives and was inspired by late Italian screen star Silvana Mangano.Straight away after the Kooba Slouchy Leather Hobo I covered yesterday plus the Eileen Fisher Huge Leather Hobo this morning, I guess it is fair to say that I’ve hobos on my brain.For far more on the Core Values campaign, go to just about every single corporation, major or tiny, properly recognized or not, fits that descriptor from time to time, but then you can discover folks who take the complete enterprise up numerous degrees of magnitude.Welcome Vintage Reign Handbags, a line produced by cousins Stacy Studnik and Cory Papunen.
