Larrick Stapleton

GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor)

Larrick Stapleton has been fighting cancer for over 35 years. His first cancer surgery was in 1977 near Philadelphia, where an intestinal tumor the size of a lemon was diagnosed as a leiomyosarcoma. In 1998, Larrick had an unexplained severe weight loss as well as a growth in his lower abdomen that could be readily felt to the touch. He was subsequently evaluated and was diagnosed with stage 4 intestinal cancer.
