I was caught up in a whirlwind when I found out that I had cancer on a Monday morning in October of 2011. I was admitted to the hospital that same day in preparation to have emergency surgery the next morning to remove the tumors and then found out I had GIST - all in a 24 hour period! I felt like my world had turned upside down and shortly after that during my recovery, I was lucky enough to find Life Raft.
I became acquainted with the Life Raft Group shortly after my forty-seventh birthday. On August 7, 2008 I underwent emergency surgery for what was thought to be a ruptured, encapsulated appendix. I went into surgery believing they had finally solved the mystery of the one-and-a-half year-old history of intermittent gastrointestinal bleeding Unfortunately, I woke up to discover that I had a rare form of cancer called GIST but I was told not to worry.
