Free personalized websites that connect loved ones during illness and recovery
In a recent e-mail I received there was a link to a 25 minute video about how to use Caring Bridge. Have you seen other families pages and liked the ability to stay up to date on health issues? Have you all of a sudden discovered that you need a way to keep family and friends informed about a loved one's major medical crisis? This video clip gives you the in's and out's of the process. (ok now I'm starting to sound like an infomercial)
I've really been thankful for Caring Bridge, it's helped me keep up with some of my students, family, friends, and even random people that someone has sent me a link for and asked me to pray for them. You tend to get caught up in their lives and eagerly await the next post, praying it's good news while preparing for bad news. It can be started by a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a relative, a good friend..... There is a place for the family to post pictures, and a journal you can read. There's also a guest book that you can use to leave a message. I've included a link to a family that I follow on Caring Bridge, they've given me permission to share this with you.
This site is free for users and is funded by donations, it's a very very good site, check it out.
