Their Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Alyssa Bigham, on-air from June
My cousin-in-law Darius Brubeck was struck down with Covid 19, isolated from everyone, fighting for his life, the CaringBridge kept us informed daily as to his progress, which was comforting and very supportive. This kind of serves creates a connection to our loved ones no matter where they are and they are a service of love and caring.
From the launch of the very first CaringBridge site, we’ve been working toward a single vision: a world where no one goes through a health journey alone. In order to turn this vision into reality, we’ve made it our mission to build bridges of care and communication providing love and support on a health journey.
Alyssa Bigham is a Development Officer at CaringBridge and has been in the nonprofit industry for over 10 years. A sociology graduate from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, a passion of hers has always been helping others. On the fundraising team at CaringBridge, Alyssa and team members strive to keep CaringBridge online, free, for anyone who needs CaringBridge anywhere during a health journey.
Alyssa first started using CaringBridge for her family when her father was battling brain cancer in 2010. When a position on the fundraising team opened, Alyssa pursued and joined the team in 2015. When Alyssa isn’t working at CaringBridge she enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs in Minneapolis, MN.
