CaringBridge Personal Web sites
Connect With Loved Ones and Expand Your Support Network
CaringBridge is a charitable nonprofit organization providing free, private Web sites that connect families and friends during a serious health event, care and recovery. A CaringBridge Web site gives people facing a health journey a place to provide updates, post photos, and receive messages of hope and encouragement in a guestbook.
Individuals and families facing pancreatic cancer can be overwhelmed by medical terminology, treatment decisions and hospital visits. In times like these, support from extended family and friends can be essential. Confronted with treatment plans that often involve complex medical terminology, families are also burdened with updating concerned family members and friends, a process that can be exhausting. The Lustgarten Foundation is pleased to offer pancreatic cancer patients and families the opportunity to use a CaringBridge Web site to centralize communication and easily update everyone.
A CaringBridge site helps people build therapeutic connections with their support networks, allowing family and friends to send messages of hope and encouragement through the online guestbook.
Founded in 1997, more than 207,000 CaringBridge websites have been created, generating more than half-a-million daily visits. The CaringBridge community includes authors, visitors and donors in all 50 states and more than 225 countries and territories.
