Tribute Garden

The Bag it Cancer Tribute Garden is a virtual place where you can recognize those touched by cancer. A donation to our Tribute Garden is a caring way to support Bag It while honoring, remembering, celebrating yourself or someone else touched by cancer. It is also a thoughtful way to pay homage to a caregiver, family member, friend or health care provider whose support eased the burdens of cancer.

In honor of Dr. Michael Boxer 

Dr. Michael Boxer may most commonly be known for his work as an Oncologist specializing in hematology at Arizona Oncology; but to me and my family, he is a true hero. In July 2009, he diagnosed my dad, Gary D. Welch, with advanced stage four multiple myeloma. After seven months of intensive treatments and a stem cell transplant, Dr. Boxer and my dad’s healthcare team helped him to make an incredible recovery. Against all odds, Dr. Boxer allowed my father to enjoy an additional ten years of holidays and family gatherings that we will always treasure. His kindness and his commitment to his patients have made him unforgettable to those who have been fortunate enough to be under his care. On behalf of my dad, Gary Welch, and in recognition of Dr. Boxer’s prestigious career, we dedicate this tribute to him in honor of his well-deserved retirement.

In honor of June O’Toole
You are an inspiration to us all.  You are always upbeat and do so much for others.
Love you!

In loving memory of Gary D. Welch 

In July 2009 Gary was diagnosed with advanced stage four multiple myeloma. Thanks to the courageous efforts of Dr. Michael Boxer and Gary’s healthcare team, he made a miraculous recovery after undergoing seven months of chemotherapy, radiation and a stem cell transplant. The following ten years included many joyous occasions and allowed Gary to spend precious time with his loved ones. He was at the hospital for the birth of each of his four grandchildren and he delighted in the close relationship he shared with each of them. Weekly zoo trips with his grandchildren, regular family BBQs and frequent visits with his mother and brother in Prescott were highlights of his last decade. Sadly, on January 27, 2020 Gary’s fight with multiple myeloma came to an end. He will always be missed, and his memory will continue to live on in the hearts of his family, especially in those of his three children and four grandchildren who knew him as a very loving and devoted father and papa.

In memory of Gary D. Welch. I’m consoled by so many memories that fill the space your leaving us has created. You’re in our minds and hearts now.
