What’s in a bag?


While in treatment, it is your lifeline, filled with all the goods (movies, books, Doctor notes, nausea medication, hair piece, hat, water/juice, notes of inspiration from friends, prayers, change of clothes, treatment record, etc.) that is always packed and ready to go with you into the daily, weekly, monthly battle for survival.  One’s packed treatment bag is carried like a badge of courage…pushing you to carry on.  When you are too weak from treatment, the bag (your lifeline) is carried by a friend or loved one because you might be too weak to carry it.  But, it remains the one true constant that you can focus on as your life and body continue to change during the course of the struggle.

Yali’s Carry On® tote bag, Yali’s story, is for everyone who has been touched by the effects of battling/surviving any chronic illness, personally or with a loved one, friend or co-worker.  It is an inspirational legacy that provides function, but most of all…the gift of hope.
