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™?

ClarkHarbert_bag-journal9Barb’s Bag® of Care & Comfort is an actual bag filled with essential items for chemotherapy patients to not only survive but thrive during their chemotherapy treatments. Think of it as a chemo survival kit!

Barb’s Bag® of Care & Comfort is made of high-end material and includes a range of products that Barbra identified as essential when going through chemotherapy.  The bag also includes “Real Talk” information about what to expect during chemo and radiation therapy.

2016 BAG IT for the CAUSE … Save the Date!

24 Apr

In 2015 we had one mission …

to prepare and distribute 500 BARB’S BAG® of Chemo Care & Comfort bags to women diagnosed with breast cancer during our National Day of Service. We did it because of YOU!

This year, our goal is to double the effort during an entire weekend!

Due to extreme demand and the ever-present need, volunteers across the country will prepare and distribute at least 1,000 bags during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and also create enough bags to meet the needs of survivors throughout the year.

To accomplish this goal we need you to SAVE THE DATE!
