The bag is a reuseable bag with a few resources and tools for them to take home, including:
- Blood pressure cuff
- A special pillow
- Information on the Dragonfly Transplant Fund and organ donation
When presented with the "swag bag," patients give me a smile. The bag contains a pillow shaped like a liver, kidney, or pancreas. The signable pillow comes with a sharpie-like pen, a couple of bracelets, a single-dose pill box, a stress ball, and a water bottle. The new items: a blood pressure cuff, thermometer, pen, and pad of paper gifts are from Dragonfly Fund. These are a very welcome addition to the swag bag; the patients love them. Some comments heard: “This is so nice,” “I feel like a star,”...“Thank you for making my day” are the most common. The patients love these bags of goodies and it is my pleasure to give them to the post-transplant patients.
