Patients - Support & Resources


A GIST cancer diagnosis is a devastating experience no matter what age you are. For many of us our first ray of hope has been to make contact with GIST patients manning the GIST Cancer UK helpline 0300 400 0000. They can talk first hand of their own experiences and provide invaluable insight where others may not be able to help.

GIST Cancer UK has championed the set-up of PAWS-GIST and is an Alliance partner. As a result we are gradually facilitating introductions of PAWS-GIST patients to others who are experiencing the same.
