What is your name?
How long have you been living with GIST?
It will be 7 years in October
What was your first thought when you were diagnosed with GIST?
I am going to die!
What do you do?
I own a consulting firm to import Displays and Store Fixtures from China
How are you doing now?
New perspective on life and death and I have been very lucky. I am coping quite well.
GIST is called a “rare” cancer, how do you feel about that term being applied to you?
I feel special that I have a rare disease but it is a mystery to most people and doctors I try to explain it to.
I try to plan about living instead of dying. This is my way to remain occupied, optimistic, and focus on living!
