Overview

In 1997, Sona Mehring created the first CaringBridge website when a close friend endured a life-threatening pregnancy. CaringBridge is now used by over 500,000 people a day, with 44 million unique visitors over the past year. Through CaringBridge, Mehring has witnessed thousands of stories of hope and connection among people struggling with stroke, cancer, and other life-changing conditions. HOPE CONQUERS ALL shares some of its most touching stories.

HOPE CONQUERS ALL will contain stories from people of all ages and backgrounds. The adversities they face vary greatly, from children with cancer, to adults requiring life-saving transplants, to victims of horrific accidents, but their stories are unified-hope does conquer all.

And CaringBridge is a place where hope grows. It's a site that helps people reach out and stay in touch through moments of great need. It inspires them and instills hope; it helps foster and encourage much-needed emotional connection. These intimate personal stories, which reveal the underlying spiritual presence that connects us all, will encourage people to create channels of love and support in their own lives.

Editorial Reviews

Jonny Imerman
"Sona shares her personal cancer experience and her VISION to create something much bigger than just one family-a powerful vision that has become one of the biggest, most powerful forces of good in the cancer world today! Amazing person, awesome vision, and beautiful story! Thank you Sona for all you do!!"
Larry Dossey
"There is an old saying in medicine: 'The secret of patient care is in caring for the patient.' That's a way of saying that love and compassion help people heal. This is what CaringBridge stands for, and it's what makes our world a better, kinder place."
Karla Blackwood
"I connected immediately with HOPE CONQUERS ALL because of my daughter's leukemia diagnosis at age 12. We used the CaringBridge website mentioned in this book, and I can vouch for it's benefits. Not only did CaringBridge bring encouragement to my daughter and our family during the long months she was hospitalized, but it was also a way to connect with concerned friends and family. This collection of stories would be a great gift to someone in a situation where health issues are overwhelming."
