IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE SHOULD BE HOSPITALIZED FOR ANY REASON, HERE'S A LINK TO A SITE THAT IS VERY GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT:http://www.caringbridge.org/Founder Sona Mehring shares her story
In 1997, good friends of mine had a premature baby. They asked me to let everyone know what was happening. Instead of making emotional and time draining phone calls, I created a website. In fact, the same night their baby Brighid was born the first CaringBridge site was started.
CaringBridge instantly became a connection point in ways that were extremely personal and powerful for everyone. The site allowed family members to communicate information to a wide circle of people. They posted daily journal entries and the guestbook enabled visitors to send the family messages of love and encouragement.
It was obvious that CaringBridge could help any family going through a health event - not only by letting everyone know what was happening but by bringing that loving, supportive community together. CaringBridge could let them be there without the barrier of when, where and how. It's vital that anyone going through any type of health event knows about CaringBridge.
Our nonprofit services are free for anyone in need thanks to individuals and families who donate. Today, we offer both our signature Sites and SupportPlanner. Almost everyone, right now, knows someone in their life that would benefit from CaringBridge. Share it with someone you love today.
