Description

During a health journey, everyone wants to know what’s going on, and how they can help. Public social media isn’t always the right place to share medical details, and it’s too hard to keep up with individual emails, texts and calls. CaringBridge offers a safe, secure place for patients and caregivers to provide health updates, and for family and friends to respond with messages of emotional support and prayers.
