What is Barb’s Bag®?

promobag_topviewBarb’s Bag® of Care & Comfort is a tote bag filled with essential items for chemotherapy patients to not only survive but thrive during their treatments. It’s a beautiful and vital chemo survival kit! Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., founder, Barbra Watson-Riley, received a “chemo bag” early in her “life in the cancer lane” from a dear friend, and former foundation board member Lori Hall-Armstrong. Barbra was so encouraged and inspired that she blogged regularly about how much she treasured the bag. Today, recipients of these helpful bags cherish the contents and tell similar stories of relief and comfort.

Barb’s Bag® of Care & Comfort is made of high-end materials and include a range of aids and products that Barbra identified as essential when going through chemotherapy. The bag also includes “Real Talk” information about what to expect during chemo and access to stream LIFE in the CANCER LANE to “live, laugh and learn” about other cancer survivor’s personal journeys.
