Welcome my support family! This site is for family and friends, old and new, to organize efforts of support and stay up-to-date.This page will serve as our home base for rallying the troops and receiving updates.
Here's the plan:
Your First Step: Please take 30 seconds to click on the "Follow" button on the top right of this page. This will allow you to receive updates, read journal entries and share on social media. Though not mandatory to follow this page, we encourage you to easily create an account with your name and email in order to be able to post photos, leave comments and sign up as a helping hand on the Calendar page. Feel free to upload a photo of yourself to your profile so we can get to know and recognize others on my support team. After clicking “Follow” above, read on to learn more about what you can do to help.
Journal: This tab is where you can read the latest entries posted and support the team. You may see additional authors writing updates here to help alleviate pressure and expedite information sharing. Each post is followed by a photo and name of the author of the entry. You can reply with supportive comments to any journal entry or click on the name of its author to send a private message.
Posts: This is where you can leave an encouraging message and to read thoughts left by others! If you have something pressing you'd like suggest that everyone sees please don't hesitate to contact us via private message so we can consider sharing it more widely in the Journal sections. There will undoubtedly be many coordinated efforts and we want to make certain they’re organized.
Calendar: Please see this important section to learn what our family needs NOW. This will be an especially helpful section for family and friends in close proximity. This is an up-to-date calendar which will list our family's immediate needs such as rides and meals to help most in the short term. If you see a need posted and can fill it, please sign up through the calendar page directly (i.e. not through private communication) to let us and others know that you've committed to that need. Please check back often to help out with the most recently posted needs! We don't imagine we will use the calendar to request needs but I have learned to never say never and this is going to take a village to get through the end.
Notifications: After clicking “Follow” above, you’ll then see a tab to manage “Notifications”. If you feel you’re receiving too many or too few email notifications, please check this section to tailor notifications to your areas of interest. For example, if you want to receive journal updates but not new calendar posts, or any combination of notifications from this site, you can do set them to your preference this section.
Don’t Forget! If you haven’t done so already, please click “Follow” on the top right. It’s your very next step to showing your support!
With love and gratitude,
Tracy and Michael Doherty
