Back in 1997, Sona Mehring of Eagan created the first CaringBridge website during a friend's high-risk pregnancy. Since then, it has become widely known for the creation and implementation of "Compassion Technology" that facilitates convenient communication for people receiving care, often individuals struggling with cancer, trama, hospice or high risk pregnancies. Their current 40 Eagan employees work with a mission which reaches out in all 50 states & over 200 countries. With 10,000 people per day being diagnosed with cancer or a severe injury, etc., they feel they are only reaching 2% of those people. Spread the word about this great website resource! "Connecting family and friends when health matters most."
Congratulations to Sona, Founder & Executive Director, and her team for making a difference!
I was bit by a foreign travel bug after my sophomore year in high school. I haven't found a cure for it, nor do I plan to. I visited India for 5 weeks in early 2009 and Europe in July 2009. My family and I spent 1 month in Sweden, Norway and Denmark in July 2010. In January 2012, I went to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains and a wedding in Jaipur, India. Then in May 2012, I returned to Japan and Bangkok, Thailand. My family and I spent 3 weeks in Paris, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany in August 2012.
