“In 1997, good friends of mine had a premature baby, and they asked me to let everyone know what was happening. Instead of making dozens of emotional and time-consuming phone calls, I decided to create a website. The same night their baby Brighid was born, so was the idea that became CaringBridge.” - Sona Mehring, CaringBridge Founder
About Sona Mehring
As women, we are hard-wired to be generative – to create; to make something out of nothing, to give of ourselves to make something else bigger and better.
As a computer programmer, Sona was inspired to create a solution using the Internet to quickly and easily communicate with family and friends during critical times. The same night that baby Brighid was born, so was the idea that is now CaringBridge. CaringBridge is a global nonprofit social network dedicated to helping people communicate with and support loved ones during a health journey through personal websites.
