Chanda's Caregiver Corner

“Day in and day out, selfless and loving Americans provide care and support to family members and friends in need. They are parents, spouses, children, siblings, relatives, and neighbors who uphold their unwavering commitment to ensure the lives of their loved ones shine bright with health, safety, and dignity.”

– President Barack Obama, Presidential Proclamation — National Family Caregivers Month, 2015

About Us

Chanda’s Caregiver Corner, a program of the Brigance Brigade Foundation, was created to provide a platform for ALS Caregivers, who are non-medical professionals, and who work tirelessly around-the-clock, to receive support, share their experiences, and hear from other individuals struggling with the same challenges they are from day to day. Through Chanda’s Caregiver Corner’s ongoing programs, campaigns, and contests, the Brigance Brigade Foundation’s goal is to touch the lives of ALS caregivers in positive ways in an effort to show them that they are not alone, and that the work they do does not go unnoticed. We seek to improve the quality of life of caregivers through connections, shared experiences, and love.

“For centuries, we have been driven by the belief that we all have certain obligations to one another. Every day, caregivers across our country answer this call and lift up the lives of loved ones who need additional support …
let us honor their contributions and pledge to continue working toward a future where all caregivers know the same support and understanding they show for those they look after.”
