Title Graphic: Finding the Right Information
Laura D. Caregiver
Santy D. Living with GIST
Laura D.: You can’t assume that every doctor’s gonna take the time to sit down and explain to you everything that you need to know.
Laura S. Caregiver
Laura S.: To anyone with any type of cancer it’s so important to see a specialist because a GIST specialist knows the tools they need to use to inform their treatment decisions.
Santy D.: I think it's important to come up with your own plan of attack, because I think the thing that I got out of it most was I had ownership in the decision-making process.
Laura D.: I think unmet needs of the community would be understanding that there are options out there, and if people could sit with their doctor and just make a group decision as to, “What’s the best plan of action for us?” and supporting each other. Just keep the positive thoughts going.
