Give Mom Peace of Mind for Mother's Day with a Medic Alert Bracelet

Medic Alert Bracelet for Mother's Day

Medical alert bracelets are extremely important for people with medical problems such as allergies and diabetes. Emergency department personnel use the jewelry to rapidly identify those who have lost consciousness or who are otherwise unable to communicate their illness to others. Readily available information about your medical history can be the difference between life and death.

In the past, medic alert jewelry was not very attractive, but today many companies offer more attractive versions to encourage daily wear.

Lauren’s Hope is a company started in 1994 by Denise Gaskill and LeAnn Carlson and named after Lauren Phillips who has type 1 diabetes. She often refused to wear her bracelet because she felt it “advertised” her illness. Today, the company offers more unobtrusive, “fashion forward” bracelets, watches, and necklaces for women, men, and children. They even offer pet tags for your 4-legged loved ones. Interchangeable bands can be ordered, making it a truly versatile piece of jewelry.

In addition to having a “personal safety device”, buying a bracelet from Lauren’s Hope also allows for a greater reaching. A portion of the profits from the bracelets go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help find a cure for children with Type 1 Diabetes.

All medical tags are personalized with four or five lines of information, including first and last name, medical condition, allergies, and emergency contact numbers. The shorter the line, the larger the font, and the easier the tag will be to read.

Want to purchase one for mom but not sure which to buy? Lauren’s Hope also offers gift certificates either by mail or email. You decide the amount.
