No One Should Go Through a Health Journey Alone

A health journey of any kind—diagnosis, injury, illness, pregnancy complications, or other experiences—is difficult to endure alone. Too often, patients and caregivers feel isolated at a time when support matters most. In these moments, there’s no match for the power of community, because healing happens when we’re surrounded by our loved ones.

About CaringBridge

Impact & Reach

For nearly 25 years, CaringBridge has made it simple and safe to offer or ask for support when it’s needed most. More than 300,000 people use our private and ad-free platform every single day, sharing health updates and rallying around loved ones.

People around the world turn to CaringBridge for health journey communications. Every twelve minutes, there’s a new CaringBridge site made to share updates and get support. And every hour, 1,900 messages of encouragement are shared on a loved one’s site.

CaringBridge users from around the country have shared their stories with us with the hope of helping others.

History

Nearly 25 years ago, our founder, Sona Mehring, had the idea for CaringBridge when she needed to share news about a good friend’s premature baby. Instead of making dozens of emotional and time-consuming phone calls, she created a website—and CaringBridge was born. To this day, we are a nonprofit staffed by people dedicated to making each health journey easier.

Executive Leadership

With Tia Newcomer at the helm, our organization is leading the way toward a world where no one goes through a health journey alone.

Financials

CaringBridge is a donor-supported nonprofit. Nearly 90% of our funding comes from people who believe that no one should go through a health journey alone. Give to CaringBridge and you will support free, private sites for anyone on a health journey. For every $30 you give, we can power one site—that’s one gift that can change the experience of someone on a health journey. Not only does your gift support the sites themselves, it helps us improve and expand our ability to help people heal. Your dollars will support our work bringing CaringBridge to more people, as well as our ongoing research and resources related to healing.
