My story

[p]PAWS-GIST is a specialist initiative of the charity GIST Cancer UK. [/p][p]GIST (Gastro Intestinal Stromal Tumour) is a rare form of cancer. PAWS-GIST (Paediatric Adolescent Wild-type and Syndromic GIST) is a rare subset of GIST cancer, often found in children and young adults. There is no cure for this cancer and treatment options are limited. PAWS-GIST aims to fund research and improve the outlook for patients with this very rare cancer.[/p][p]Since the PAWS-GIST initiative was created in 2010 we have formed the PAWS-GIST clinic; an alliance with specialists at Addenbrooke’s hospital, Cambridge. The clinic enables individual patient consultations with a multidisciplinary team of specialists and provides tailored treatment plans. The clinic also serves as a research project by providing a wealth of information on this rare disease. To-date we seen over 100 patients.[/p][p]In addition to the PAWS-GIST clinic, our initiative also funds several research projects, aiming to further our understanding of this disease and develop new treatment options. Our clinic team actively seek treatment options that may be effective for this rare subgroup of GIST patients and are working to open opportunities for PAWS-GIST specific clinical trials.[/p][p]The charity GIST Cancer UK and the PAWS-GIST initiative are run entirely by volunteers and receive no government funding.[/p][p]If you would like further information, or would like to support our work please contact fundraising@pawsgistclinic.org.uk or visit our [url=http://www.pawsgistclinic.org.uk]website[/url].[/p]
