What we're about

Do you feel isolated and alone with pain or illness? Or do you just wish you had a friend you could call on, anytime of the day or night? Do you bemoan the fact that people text or email these days, but they rarely are able to drop everything and go sit with a sick friend to offer comfort? This empathy group is a network of local women in the Portland, Oregon, area who want to do just that--take care of each other. My goal is for us each to have at least 5 women we can contact at a moment's notice, if we're sick or scared or just need a friend, who will offer genuine compassion. I suffer from chronic pain and illness, and I have as much need to give as to receive such care. Come join our growing community of nurturing, caring women!
