Bridging the Communication Gap

There’s no support system quite like family. But when family members are spread across the United States or the globe, it can be time consuming to update each person with news concerning your child’s health. CaringBridge.org provides free Web sites to help connect individuals who are going through a serious health event or recovery.

Easy to create and maintain, CaringBridge sites allow authors to add health updates, photos and more; the site also gives readers a platform to post messages in your guestbook. Visitors can also subscribe to an instant-update newsletter to alert them when you’ve posted a new message.
