Welcome to Groups!
What are Groups? They are people bound by common values and interests. Bright Beacon believed that parents might want to organize themselves by diagnosis, region, or other common interests. So now you can create specific groups based on these criteria. Want to talk to all the Bright Beacon parents from Alabama who have kids with leukemia all at once? Create a group for them and then post on your group's page! Hockey moms who have children with diabetes? Post pictures of your last get-together or picnic. Propose a holiday party. Bright Beacon wants you to be able to socialize with both individuals and groups with ease! Feeling lonely? Search for groups specifically in your zipcode or even in neighboring states!
Take a moment and introduce your child and your family.
