How it works

Support texts offer ongoing, expert help to people navigating a terminal diagnosis.

1. Sign up for texts

It only takes 5 minutes to complete our sign up form. The more you're comfortable sharing, the better we'll be able to customize your text messages based on age, relationship, diagnosis, and dates that are important to you (like a birthday or a holiday).

My name is Jeanie. I am the primary caregiver for my dad, Gerard, who is dying from dementia. I would like extra support on Father's Day, Christmas, and Easter.

2. Add supporters

This step is optional, but research shows that receiving support from others helps people navigating a terminal illness feel less isolated and more cared for.

Using your customized email template or QR code, easily send invites to the people you'd like to support you. Once they accept, we'll text them gentle suggestions and tips about how to be there for you.

You focus on taking care of yourself; we'll take care of educating your friends and family.

3. Start getting texts

Once you're signed up, there's nothing else you need to do. You'll receive your first text within minutes. Sit back and let helpful, expert support come to you.

Hi, Jeanie. People rarely talk about how much paperwork is involved in grief. Know that it's normal to feel overwhelmed by administrative tasks and papers. One thing you can do now to help yourself in the future is to take pictures of everything that might be important as you care for your dad. There are many services including phone applications and online services that can help you scan and keep track of important documents.
