For two decades, it has been our honor to share the Bag It Bag with cancer patients and caregivers to arm them with trustworthy tools and information.

We promise to continue to help cancer patients be organized and ready to advocate for themselves.

My involvement as a volunteer with Bag It started 20 years ago in 2003. What started as a couple of weeks of volunteering helping out Sherri Romanoski, ended up being 20 years of being involved in this wonderful organization. I have had the honor of being able to participate in so many events and share my talents in different committees. I continue to volunteer because I have seen first hand the meaningful service and support that it provides to people. For example, my own mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and went through the treatment. She received one of the first Bag It bags and it was a helpful resource. I believe in the mission of Bag It, and I look forward to continuing my support in any way that I can.”

I’d heard about Bag It from a friend of mine who told me the story of Sherri’s commitment to make information easily available to cancer patients and her founding of Bag It in 2003. It sounded like a great idea, and it became very real to me when my daughter was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 – as soon as I told her, my friend was there with a hug and a Bag It bag. My daughter was grateful for the bag and found comfort in having reliable information put together by someone who’d been there. The bag and contents were something certain that helped us navigate our way through the uncertain times of seemingly never-ending tests and treatments. After my daughter’s recovery, I knew I wanted to give back to Bag It and I started volunteering for various events and projects as they came along. With Bag It, I’ve found a wonderful group of volunteers and staff who are positive, enthusiastic, and committed. As I Listen to stories from other cancer survivors, I know Bag It continues to have a positive impact and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”
