Many people do not have computer access, or might have computer access, but would rather have a phone conversation with someone that is or has been in the same situation as themselves.

GSI has both patient and caregiver volunteers willing to speak on the phone with GIST patients, caregivers or their friends and families. We call the program "Phone Pal".

We try to match you with a volunteer that is best suited for your situation. These people will try to answer your questions, give you moral support, or just lend an ear while you talk.

If you would like to speak with one of our volunteers or know someone that would benefit from a one on one conversation, PLEASE contact us. You are not and do not have to feel alone!!!

To contact GSI for general information or to have a volunteer call you, please call the GSI office at 215-340-9374 or e-mail :

We look forward to hearing from you!!

Donna Capps for the GSI Operating Committee
