Constantly learning about amazing people or amazing programs doing important things for their community just for the sake of doing the right thing, the good thing, is one of my favorite things about being Mrs. Green. BAG IT clearly falls into that category. BAG IT has a single mission: to educate, support and empower those impacted by cancer. They help empower patients to be more involved in their care, advocate for themselves and learn to cope with the myriad of challenges associated with diagnosis and treatment. And they take it a step further, BAG IT empowers cancer advocates to promote this same vision in their communities. This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Medical Center.
