CaringBridge services are available to anyone, anywhere, at no cost. These free services are made possible by the generosity of donors and the support of volunteers within the CaringBridge community.

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so grateful for this site. I am able to see what is going on with my dear friend who lives many states away. Caringbridge takes the communication burden off the family while interconnecting all of us who love and support our friend in his time of need.

Caringbridge costs the family nothing which is so wonderful for families who may have extreme financial stress on top of illness.

I am so pleased to donate to this wonderful and loving organization.

May God bless this organization and all the patients and families and doctors caring for them, in Jesus name, Amen.

Beware! Despite hundreds of complaints, this "nonprofit" refuses to change the Donate portion of their pages to make it VERY CLEAR that the donations to NOT go to the site member - they all go to Caring Bridge.

This is ridiculous. It is dishonest and it's deceitful.

During the time when my friend was being treated for a brain tumor, CaringBridge assisted her family and friends in keeping us updated as to her ongoing condition and treatment. Sadly, my friend did pass away but in CaringBridge kept her family and friends connected, even to this day. CaringBridge is a caring, compassionate organization which is strictly non-profit. It exists only through donations. I thank God for such an organization.
