Using CaringBridge Mobile to stay connected

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I've been using CaringBridge to keep up with friends who are struggling with illness and medical conditions. Lately, I've been on CaringBridge almost every day.

If you're not familiar with CaringBridge, here's a brief description:

CaringBridge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing free websites that connect family and friends during a serious health event, care and recovery.

A CaringBridge website is personal, private and available 24/7. It helps ease the burden of keeping family and friends informed. The websites are easy to create and use. Authors add health updates and photos to share their story while visitors leave messages of love and support in the guestbook.
  •  Each day, over half-a-million people connect through CaringBridge.
  •  The CaringBridge community includes authors, visitors and/or donors in all 50 states and more than 225 countries/territories around the world.
Some day, I may be sharing my own story on CaringBridge if I encounter a serious medical condition. If you have a patient who is dealing with a serious medical condition, you may want to tell them about CaringBridge. Many patients and family members have found CaringBridge to be a valuable source of social support.

You can download a CaringBridge app for your iPhone. Or, you can direct your mobile browser to the CaringBridge Mobile website here:  http://m.caringbridge.org/
