21. December 2013 · Comments Off on THE 2013 GIST AND SARCOMA CANCER RESEARCH CONFERENCE: RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS · Categories: Doctor Research

Brigham Logo SmThe annual GIST and Sarcoma Cancer Research Conference, organized by the GIST Cancer Research Fund, serves as an invaluable forum for patients and their families to hear about the latest advances in the field from scientists and clinicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).

Last year’s event, which was held in April, was no exception. More than a dozen investigators, physicians, and caregivers at the leading edge of research and care from both BWH and DFCI gathered at the conference to share the latest findings, clinical trial updates, and therapeutic advances with patients, which provide them with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their own treatment strategies. Below is a brief synopsis of just a few of the many research highlights from the day’s presentations.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

10:30 am – 2:00 pm
Almaden Lake Park
Winfield Blvd & Coleman Avenue (Almaden Expy)

In 2007, Irene Wing began and coordinated the San Jose WALK FOR A CURE.  She continued in that role until she lost her courageous battle with GIST.  Her friend Liz Chew, in an effort to honor Irene's memory, took over the event and has continued the effort to help erradicate this devastating disease.  

All funds raised go to GCRF to assist in the fight against GIST.  It is the goal of the GCRF to provide patient support, generate awareness for GIST and raise funds to support continued research to expand the development and access of important life-saving therapies. GIST is a cancer that has no cure and afflicts thousands of people annually. With your help, research has helped to prolong and improve the quality of life for those coping with this cancer. We can't do it without you! Thank you for your support!
