GIST Support Uk
GIST Support UK works to help patients and families affected by GIST (gastro-intestinal stromal tumours). GIST is a rare cancer and is one of a group of cancers known as sarcomas. The Charity runs an email list and meetings to provide the opportunity to talk to others, and to hear about and discuss aspects of treatment with health professionals. There are fewer than 1,000 cases of GIST reported annually in the UK, usually affecting people over the age of 60. There is however an even rarer group of patients with Paediatric, Adolescent, Wild-type or Syndromic GIST, and our newly formed PAWS-GIST Clinical Focus Group has been set up by a group of doctors, patients & carers in the UK, who are focussing on improving treatment and finding a cure for PAWS-GIST patients. More information about the Charity can be found by visiting our website at www.gistsupportuk.com.

UKTV are at it again, with their latest fundraising initiative. 2015 brings you their battle against ‘the ELEMENTS’, all in aid of raising funds and awareness for GIST Support UK.

GIST Support UK were voted for by staff, as the company's Charity of the Year for 2015

Following the success of the #UKTVTriathlon last year, 2015 promises to be bigger and better, using ‘the ELEMENTS’ as their inspiration. It’s Fitness VS. Fear.

Sadly the Elements beat us in the Water challenge and the Dragon Boat race had to be called off as it was too dangerous to set sail. But never fear - we will be finding a suitable alterantive challenge for the team to face shortly so watch this space! In the meantime we will be facing FIRE on the 25th September as over 40 people will try not to literally have feet of flames when they take on the FIREWALK. This takes a massive amount of mind over matter to take on the hot coals so please dig deep and show your support for everybody. Thank you!

Follow their journey as they take on Fire, Air, Earth and Water over at www.Facebook.com/UKTVGive and www.Twitter.com/UKTVGive and follow #UKTVElements
