The month of March is National Hemophilia Awareness Month, and I'll admit, when I was tasked with this blog post, my initial thought was, "Hmm... I think I know what that is, but I'm not 100% sure," because although I thought I knew what Hemophilia is, I didn't truly understand the impact it can have on a person's everyday life. I didn't know that in the United States, approximately 20,000 people are living with Hemophilia.
Since I work here at Lauren's Hope, it might seem pretty obvious as to why I'm such an advocate for Medical ID Jewelry, but the reality is, working here has only served to open my eyes as to why most Americans should wear one. Medical ID jewelry isn't just for those with certain medical conditions, drug or food allergies. Medical IDs are also a live-saving tool for caregivers too.
February is National Senior Independence Month! Independence is an incredibly important issue for families who have seniors who live at home with them. Senior independence is key to establishing the comfort and confidence Seniors long for, but it can be difficult to maintain for seniors who have difficult living circumstances.
It's Random Acts of Kindness Week!
The week of February 7-14 is National Congenital Heart Defect Week! If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect, we encourage you to visit the American Heart Association's website or the Congenital Heart Defect Information Network for more information and resources about living with a Congenital Heart Defect.

As soon as I was greeted by the nurse, I knew something was amiss. The nurse quickly ushered me into an exam room, and only a few short minutes later, my doctor followed.
First off, I’d like to introduce myself: Hello! I’m Brittany McNeal. That's me over there to the right... Snazzy. I’m the brand-spanking new content creator at Lauren’s Hope, and I (like almost 8% of Americans) have an autoimmune disease. In fact, like most people who have an autoimmune disease, I have more than one: Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s Disease.
