Over 100 types of cancer are considered rare because fewer than 20,000 people per year are diagnosed.
5,000 people are diagnosed with GIST each year in the United States.

Thirteen people diagnosed each day may seem small but every day 13 people are added to the organ transplant list, 13 people in the US die of food-borne illness… 13 people are diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
All of a sudden, 13 people doesn't seem so small after all.
