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!

promobag_topview2

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!

Know someone going through chemo? Here’s what NOT to say!

22 Sep

Do you know someone going through chemotherapy? Guide2Chemo.com offers some advice about how best to support them through their treatment. You may be surprised how your well intended comments may not have their intended effect. Keep Calm … and read on.

keep-calm-shhhh“Many people undergoing chemo have similar experiences—well-meaning friends and family who are unsure of what to say, inadvertently causing the chemo patient to feel, well…worse.

And Patricia Farrell, a psychologist in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, says hearing comments that make you feel badly can actually have an impact on your health. “Negative thoughts, even those brought on by other people’s careless remarks, can lower your immune system,” says Farrell, author ofHow to Be Your Own Therapist: A Step-by-Step Guide to Taking Back Your Life. ‘Unfortunately, many women feel obligated to be accommodating and fail to insist on boundaries in conversations.’

If you’re speaking with someone who is currently undergoing or recently underwent chemo treatments, unintentionally negative remarks are easy to avoid if you know which topics should be off-limits. Stay away from:

  1. False compliments
  2. Comparisons
  3. Death and limitations
  4. Anxiety-provoking comments
  5. Treatment woes”
