Join us on Thursday, September 10th at 1pm ET for our next “Conversations with the LRG" for a discussion of the role of the GIST Mentor and how one can assist you on your GIST journey.
GIST Mentors Santy DiSabatino, Marlene Nei and Rob Taylor will discuss the role of the GIST Mentor and how a Mentor can assist you on your GIST journey.
An LRG GIST Mentor helps patients and their caregivers through their GIST journey – from receiving a diagnosis to navigating different resources of information, support, treatment options, side effects, etc.
The LRG held a GIST Mentor training day in our offices in Wayne, NJ, in October 2019. The gallery includes photos of the new GIST Mentors, LRG staff. One of the training days was on Halloween so some of the staff dressed up. These photos were taken by David Josephy of Life Raft Group Canada.
[Please note that GIST Peer Support program has been renamed the GIST Mentor Program 11.5.19]. Last month, we posted information on our new program to support our members. The GIST Peer Program is an additional support system to help patients and their caregivers through a very difficult time in their lives. Why? They may just be finding out they or a loved one has GIST, or they are experiencing a recurrence and they want to be able to talk with someone.
