MyCaringLink enables a caregiver to create a private, online community to organize help from their friends and loved ones to accomplish daily tasks become a challenge during a brain tumor diagnosis.
The challenges that caregivers face—as well as the vital role that they play in the lives of brain tumor patients—is all too often unrecognized or underestimated. Caregiving is a journey in and of itself, and caregiver stress can be overwhelming. It is our hope that by helping caregivers to better leverage the many support networks they already have, the MyCaringLink tool will help alleviate some of that stress and allow caregivers to focus on providing comfort and care to their loved ones who are living with a brain tumor.
Each MyCaringLink community features a Help Calendar for organizing tasks that friends and family can sign-up to take responsibility for, an Announcement section to keep friends updated on the patient, and an area for people to leave well wishes and messages.
