  • Caring Bridge

    Has anyone used or heard of Caring Bridge? If not, and you know of someone sicks or has cancer, this is a great website to set up for them. My girlfriend set one up for me. Feel free to check it out.

    My husband and I used it religiously when he was getting his high dose chemo/stem cell transplant in Indiana and also during the last year for his other chemo treatments.

    We found it a great place to post what was happening on a daily basis. People received detailed information and it also kept down the number of phone calls, then you were able to concentrate on the high dose chemo versus being on the phone all the time or having to return 20 million phone calls.

    I highly recommend it for folks going through treatment. Guests can post comments, questions, thoughts, jokes, pictures, etc.

      This is a great website, and I will keep it in mind for myself or family/friends if (hopefully not) anyone should ever fall ill.

      Thanks for the information!

      Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
