Caring Bridge.org: Blogging for Those Fighting for Their Lives and Living for the Moment!

         

          I just signed up for my log in with CaringBridge.org and left a message for the niece of a dear friend- Kara is 6 years old and just diagnosed with leukemia.  Today she will wake up and see her new messages and I’m hoping my few words from Colorado cheer and encourage her.  fighting leukemia- a journey 2011

 

         CaringBridge is an amazing site that lets family and friends keep up with daily highs and lows of someone’s struggle with illness and send encouraging words to be read over and over again. It’s less obtrusive than the phone when sleep is at a premium or schedules are geared around appointments and tests.  It allows updates at the click of a mouse with accuracy in details and photo options.  Requests can be sent worldwide and prayer warriors can engage at a moments notice.  

          The therapeutic outlet for patients enduring the daily battle can not be underestimated. It’s a place to cry, scream, rant, or shout for joy with each and every battle won no matter how minute.  It’s a place to leave words of encouragement and helpful hints to those that are just entering the chaos from those that have traveled further down the path earning the right to be called experienced.

It gives loved ones a place to join hands through cyberspace and embrace each other through an uninvited and unexpected journey.  It provides a sense of community in an otherwise foreign land, verifies that one is not alone, and places a beautiful face upon the hearts of those of us lucky enough to read their humble words.

Lorraine - CaringBridge provides an excellent way to keep friends and family informed when there is serious illness.  My sister learned she had cancer a year and a half ago - since that time it has moved from place to place in her body and she is fighting a battle daily to survive.  We just learned last week it is now in her kidney - so the fight goes on.  CaringBridge allows us to keep everyone informed as it is impossible to keep up with the phone calls and it is difficult to talk about it all the time - so we can provide all the information on-line for those who care.  I highly recommend this CaringBridge.

Barbara my thoughts and prayers are with you and your sister.  The unique potential to stay connected on CaringBridge takes blogging to a new level and gives families a venue to communicate when sometimes it's too much to make those calls.

Wow. This is really cool. I have lost family members and this would have been a nice spot to share. Thanks
