Making the Most of your Bag It Bag

Be Your Best Advocate

Have you been diagnosed with cancer? Then you are a Survivor. Bag It resources touch on topics that support anyone, at any stage of diagnosis, with any type of cancer. From nutrition, to talking to your employer about cancer, to taking care of the caregiver, the Bag It bag is a wealth of information, and will help each Survivor to become your very best self-advocate.

The Bag It bag & guidebook were given to me by my breast surgeon when a mammogram found my cancer.
The Bag It notebook was the best possible item to organize all the doctor’s notes, tests, and other medical info. It’s extremely well thought out. The doctors were so impressed they have everything that was needed! I still have the notebook and use it 5 years later.
