laura_quinn The GIST community has lost another friend.  Laura Quinn (42) recently passed away,  She was diagnosed with GIST in Oct. 2006 and her courage in her struggle has been an inspiration to us all. 

She leaves behind her daughter Zia (pictured left), her son Cal and husband Malcolm – as well as countless friends. 

If you would like to donate to the fight against GIST in Laura's name, you may do so here – or visit her tribute website (at ) to learn more about her journey.
