When I found out about my cancer, I started using CaringBridge. It’s a great resource to use to keep people up-to-date all at the same time without feeling stressed.

What can CaringBridge 
do for you?

CaringBridge is a non-profit platform for sharing health updates. It is an easy and ad-free way to communicate health news to family and friends-all in one place.

Digital Communication Platform to Post Health Updates 

When you're on a health journey, even something simple like texting or emailing updates to loved ones is one to-do too many. CaringBridge is a platform for sharing health updates with everyone in your circle-saving time and energy.

The CaringBridge Planner

Tasks specific to your health journey that make your to-do list overwhelming. But even when you need help the most, you may be hesitant to reach out directly-worried that it's asking too much. The CaringBridge Planner offers relief and support. Easily ask your community to help with some of your tasks.

Mobile App

Our mobile app offers you convenience, which is essential on a health journey.
