What a wonderful show of support from the Radiology Ltd. community in Tucson.

I attended my first BAG IT event on Friday, July 28, at the Radiology Ltd. located at Carondelet. They held two Bake Sales/Root Beer Float fundraisers in July with 100% of the collected proceeds going directly to BAG IT.  What could be better than root beer floats on a hot Tucson day!

I was very impressed with Guest Services Representative Nadia Jimenez.  She enthusiastically coordinated more than 10 coworkers to donate cash, baked or bought goodies and Pepsi Co. to donate the rootbeer to ensure that more dollars could benefit BAG IT!  Together with Professional Relations Representative Laura De La Torre, they invited staff and patients to stop by to choose an afternoon goodie or take them up on their offer of a root beer float made to order, dropping in a donation to help support BAG IT!

Our information table was visited by many people that stopped to learn more about how BAG IT helps newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families Fight The Fear of cancer.  Several who had received a bag from their doctor shared how helpful it was to them personally.

What a fun and easy way for an office group to support BAG IT and expose others to BAG IT and the great work we do!  Thank you to Radiology Ltd. for their ongoing support of BAG IT.  We appreciate you! And thanks to BAG IT volunteer Natalie Ireland for helping to make the event a success.

If you are interested in holding an event to support BAG IT please contact our Volunteer & Event Coordinator, Lisa, at lisa@bagit4u.org to set something up today.  Every little bit helps us continue to provide the BAG IT resource bag at no charge to patients to help Educate, Support & Empower them on a difficult journey.
