BOUNCE NET ®
What is Bounce Net?
A private online community of 24/7 support available to Bounce parents/caregivers enabling them to share resources, compare notes and encourage one another whenever and wherever they need it most.
How does the Bounce Net program help?
With access restricted only to enrolled Bounce members, Bounce Net serves as a virtual safety net. As such it allows parents/caregivers to share personal/confidential information and ask sensitive questions that only those who walk a similar path in life can help with. Bounce Net provides members with comfort and support that is greatly needed to celebrate ‘wins’ and more importantly, to cope with the never ending ‘setbacks’ that accompany chronic illness. This 24/7 online community provides Bounce families with the encouragement, strength, sense of belonging, and positive coping mechanisms they need to power on when they don’t know where else to turn.
