What's a Bogg Bag?: Our dear friend and creator, Kim Vaccarella is the genius behind the wonderful bags Necessity Bags uses.  Originally made to fulfill her own need for a beach bag: large enough to carry everything for a day at the beach or pool; sturdy and durable enough to not tip over and spill everything; and easily cleanable with a quick rinse off, Bogg Bags seemed the perfect carry all for Necessity Bags to use.  And, when chemo is done, and the new memories are starting, you can take your Bogg Bag to the beach, or pool, or farmer's market or on a road trip adventure and enjoy!

Need Help?:

Not everyone has the help they need when they need it.  If you are in the Northern NJ area and find that you are in need of a caring soul, The Suburban Concierge is exactly what the Dr. ordered.  From easy errands like prescription pick up, to grocery shopping or meal delivery, this Personal Concierge service will give you the ability to de-stress, relax and heal.  Also a wonderful gift for a loved one that you cannot help yourself.
