JOIN checkboxes and text cells into one new column

Currently my formula is set up to show me text based off what cells are checked. I need to add to this formula so it will show me checked cells AND a text cell, combined. I've tried expanding the range to include Toys and that did not work. Any suggestions?

Current formula for the EquipmentHelper column:

=JOIN(COLLECT($Ultrasound$1:$Acupuncture$1, Ultrasound2:Acupuncture2, @cell = 1), ", ")

I need to incorporate the Toys column with the checkbox columns.

For example, row 4 EquipmentHelper would show "Ultrasound, Laser therapy, Warming Tables"

    Hi @mhenryWVP

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    JOIN(COLLECT($Ultrasound$1:$Acupuncture$1, Ultrasound@row:Acupuncture@row, @cell = 1), ", ") 
    + IF(Toys@row <> "", "," + Toys@row)

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
