Mission Statement

Bag It reaches out to cancer patients, of any gender, age, or cancer type, at a critical time - right after their diagnosis. The information is designed to help them cope with their diagnosis, move more competently through the treatment process, empower them to become an active member of the treatment team, and transition to follow up care. Bag It provides information to people with any cancer and their families to help them cope with their diagnosis and treatment. Bag It helps Fight The Fear. Bag It will empower patients to be more involved in their care, advocate for themselves, and learn to cope with the challenges associated with diagnosis and treatment. Further, Bag It empowers cancer advocates to promote this same vision in their communities.
