CaringBridge.org allows creation of free, personal and private websites that connect people experiencing a health challenge with family and friends

CaringBridge provides free websites that connect people experiencing a significant health challenge to family and friends, making each health journey easier. CaringBridge is free to users because it is powered and supported by generous donors.

Patients and caregivers who receive a difficult diagnosis should consider creating a CaringBridge website to document their personal health journey. CaringBridge can help those with serious health challenges to communicate with friends and family about their journey. And, friends and loved ones can leave messages and thoughts of inspiration for the patient. Because patients may have time constraints due to facility visiting hours or medication protocols, the CaringBridge guest book allows communication at convenience. Visitors to the guest book don't have to worry that their attempts to reach out might be intrusive or ill timed. And, the patient can communicate with supporters through journal postings. Those with serious health challenges are encouraged to explore this wonderful resource.

The following information is from the About Us section of the CaringBridge.org website:
CaringBridge websites offer a personal and private space to communicate and show support, saving time and emotional energy when health matters most. The websites are easy to create and use. Authors add health updates and photos to share their story while visitors leave messages of love, hope and compassion in the guestbook.
