Albany -- You can now check on patients at Phoebe Putney Hospital, without having to disturb them.  A new Internet program called CaringBridge makes it easy for family and friends to keep in touch with people receiving medical care.

Russell Martin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July, and has received treatment at Phoebe and a hospital in Texas. Martin started his own web page on CaringBridge to make it easy for friends and family to check on his progress. He can update the Web page with his latest information.

Friends can check the CaringBridge website and leave messages. Martin says it's much easier for him than answering a lot of phone calls.  

"But so many people want to know typically when they have a relative who is ill, being treated for something like cancer. It just makes it so much easier," says Martin.  

Martin has had nearly 13,000 visits to his web page, and it's a free service.
