Our annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraising drive, BAG IT® for the CAUSE, has officially begun. BAG IT® for the CAUSE is our National Service Initiative to assemble and to distribute free Barb’s Bag® of Care & Comfort chemotherapy bags. We distribute BARB’S BAG® directly to women and also to healthcare partners for women diagnosed with breast cancer undergoing treatment, especially women in underserved communities.

Since 2014, we have distributed over 1,000 free bags. We need your help to continue to bless the lives of women living with breast cancer. Donate today!

Gift a bag and bless a life!

What is Barb’s Bag™?
