Comfort the Sick

What’s the story?

Good health is something we don’t always think about. We might not even realize how great it is to be healthy until we come down with the flu or a stomach bug. Sometimes people get really sick and it takes them a long time to feel better. When you’re not feeling well, your mom or dad might take care of you by bringing you a bowl of soup or your favorite blanket. In much the same way, you can help people who are fighting off longer illnesses by offering them care, comfort and support.

What Can I Do?

Learn How You Can Help

There are organizations in every city working to support people who are sick and their families during their time of need. Familiarize yourself with the nonprofits in your community working to assist those who may be facing a medical crisis they didn’t expect.

Provide Support

Some organizations help by providing short-term housing for those seeking medical treatment at nearby hospitals. Others offer food or extra supplies to help make life a little easier for those working hard to get better. And some provide a little needed distraction during the tough times. Find projects you can do to help them along the way.

Advocate for Research

The causes of many illnesses that effect our loved ones are still unknown. Beyond assisting those who may be in immediate medical need, you can help advocate for and encourage the continued research being done to help find tomorrow’s cures.

Did you know…

More money is spent on healthcare in America than in any other country in the world.

Yet, we do not have the longest life spans or the lowest rates of disease. In fact, millions of Americans face serious medical crises every year.
