CaringBridge Hope Conquers All!

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting  for CaringBridge. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.*

During the past three years, I had several family members and friends who experienced a life-changing event or illness. First, my husband had to get brain surgery from an AVM that was found in his brain just three weeks before my daughter was born. Second, my best friend’s mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Third, a sweet two year old girl, whose mom I am friends with, was diagnosed with leukemia. And lastly, one of my best friend’s friends had to get her leg amputated as a result of the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred this past April.Screen Shot 2013-08-07 at 10.18.37 PM

With most of these events, CaringBridge pages were set up to provide a way for them to receive support and a way for us to all be kept with up to date with their progresses. For more than 15 years, the nonprofit CaringBridge  has served as a lifeline of hope, bringing together families struggling with illnesses and tragedies. I have personally been involved with a lot of CaringBridge pages through the years and it is a truly wonderful way to help people who are suffering with these illnesses or life-changing events and to help show our love for them.

Sona Mehring, who is  the founder of CaringBridge,  wants to share these important collections of stories to inspire hope through her new book, Hope Conquers All. Ranging from young children with cancer, to adults awaiting transplants, these first-person accounts share the importance CaringBridge had in their personal journeys. For uplifting tales to share with those who are in need of love and support, or even to just reflect on how brave these individuals were through such troubled times, be sure to learn more about Sona Mehring’s book and how to purchase here: All author proceeds from this book will go to CaringBridge.

    I worked with Caring Bridge last year and got to know their site when I posted for them. I used this site as an offshoot of doing the posts. It is honestly such a great resource especially for parents trapped in that sandgen slot. What a great resource the book will be for so many.

    CaringBridge is a really great site for keeping friends and family informed of what’s going on with your family member. My brother is using it right now to chronicle the progress of his son, who is battling Neuroblastoma (he comes home on Friday, after a successful stem cell transplant, yay!) The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the fact that when you are a visitor to the site, they do ask you for a donation in tribute to the individual. The problem with this, is the site isn’t very clear from first glance about the fact that the donation goes to CaringBridge, not to the individual. Many people assume the donations go to the individual.
