CaringBridge provides free Web sites to those wishing to stay in touch with family and friends during a serious medical condition, treatment and recovery. Through those sites, families can easily update those who care and still focus their energies on the person who requires healing. Supporters stay involved by reading journal entries, viewing photos, and leaving messages of love and support in the guestbook. At the same time, hospitals and treatment centers ensure patients receive the emotional support they need, especially when personal visits are not possible.
More than 30 million friends and families are connected each year through personal CaringBridge Web sites that have generated more than 880 million visits and 20 million messages of hope and encouragement. For more information visit www.caringbridge.org.
