Here is a little more background on the BAG IT! organization – they are a non-profit organization who reaches out to cancer patients at a critical time, generally right after diagnosis. The information they provide helps them cope with their diagnosis and subsequent treatment. BAG IT! bags are handed out all across Arizona by surgeons, oncologists and nurses, to patients on their first visit. Inside the bag is an organizational binder and several publications that offer skills essential for coping with their diagnosis and treatment. Information for caregivers is also provided, and the BAG IT! literature is offered in Spanish as well. So far over 40,000 individuals have been helped since 2003.
