Have a Very Celiac-Friendly Thanksgiving

  
  
  
GlutenContainingIngredients

About a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Although now I know that I can enjoy a lot of the same foods (albeit modified) that I could before my diagnosis, there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not nose-deep in an ingredients label, sifting through all the jargon and manufacturing information that usually goes unread.


How to choose and engrave an autism medical ID

  
  
  
A372 Armstrong Medical ID Bracelet With Tag


Every day, I answer customer calls here at Lauren’s Hope. I love talking with our customers and hearing their stories, learning about their conditions, and helping them find the products that work best for them and their loved ones. Every once in a while, however, I get a very special call. I get a call from a mom just like me.

Years ago, when I bought my son’s first medical ID bracelet, I had no idea what to engrave on an autism medical ID. I just felt that a nonverbal child with autism should really have one. I didn’t know what products would work well for Will, which made it all that much harder to narrow down the massive range of choices. I bought medical IDs from a few companies, and they all broke within weeks. Their customer service teams were unhelpful, and I moved on. And then I found Lauren’s Hope.  The customer service I received at LH made all the difference to me, so much so that four years later, I moved across the country to join the staff.

Plan an Allergy-Friendly Halloween

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite nights of the year. I love seeing all the youngsters out and about in my neighborhood wearing their spooky, cute, and funny costumes.


Halloween Safety for Kids With Special Circumstances

Last Halloween was my daughter’s first big holiday since being diagnosed with a chocolate allergy. I was more than a little nervous about her school parties, expecting a call from the nurse at any moment. Thankfully, she navigated the events (with the help of her terrific teacher) without incident, and our trick-or-treating went off without a hitch as well.

Much of this is due to the fact that Julia, then 6, was already well aware of her allergy and comfortable self-advocating. She always asks whether foods have chocolate in them and takes the extra step to explain that it’s an important question, as she is allergic. Of course, that’s all well and good when a child self-advocates this way. But many children do not or cannot, which can make Halloween more than a little intimidating for their parents.

How to engrave your lymphedema alert medical ID

  
  
  
Hope Cuff With Sleeve

Lymphedema is a risk breast cancer patients and survivors know all too well. Although most commonly associated with lymph node damage and removal during mastectomies, lymphedema can also result from tumor growth that impedes the flow of lymphatic fluid as well as from radiation treatment, which can cause scarring and inflammation of the lymph nodes and vessels. For these reasons, it is important that all breast cancer patients and survivors wear medical ID jewelry. So that begs the question...


What You Need To Know About Lymphedema

Medical ID jewelry isn’t something that often comes up in conversations about breast cancer, but the truth is, it really should be. The reason? Lymphedema.

Bullying Prevention Month: Learn How You Can Make A Difference!

  
  
  
PACER Unity Day

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Thanks to nationwide efforts, bullying has become less tolerated than ever in recent years, but it still happens every day. That’s one reason why PACER Center, an organization devoted to supporting children with disabilities and their families, has created PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which is the organization behind National Bullying Prevention Month and its cornerstone, Unity Day on October 22nd.

Here at Lauren’s Hope, we hear about bullying quite a bit. In fact, when parents call to order medical ID jewelry for their children, bullying is often one of the topics they’re most concerned about. We hear about children being bullied for having special needs, allergies, chronic medical conditions, disabilities, medical devices, and on and on. Parents are sometimes concerned that their children will even be bullied for wearing their medical ID jewelry.
