“Lauren’s Hope” started out as “You Name It,” and began as a fun little business making personalized gifts for women and children. They were approached by Lauren’s Hope for A Cure to make medical ID bracelets. The medical alert line became so popular, that they changed the name of the company to “Lauren’s Hope.” While they started out focusing on diabetes, Lauren’s Hope quickly learned of the tremendous need for medical alert bracelets for all medical conditions. Today, their products are available for men, women and children of all ages and diagnoses, and their product line consists of everything from bracelets to dog tags to temporary tattoos.
Several PPMD parents strongly endorsed Lauren’s Hope, saying that the company was responsive and easy to work with, the products are durable and the engraving is deep enough to last. We contacted Lauren’s Hope and they have generously agreed to work with our community.
There was much discussion regarding what is most important to engrave. Please keep in mind that the information on the jewelry is primarily for “first responders” (fire department, EMT, etc.) We are recommending that the following information is engraved:
The engraving will look like this:
JOE SMITH 05/23/99
3215609880 NKDA (or +KDA) +MEDS
NO INHALED ANESTHESIA
