On World Health Day, the World Health Organization draws attention to a public health problem of global proportions. This year, the theme for World Health Day is vector-borne diseases.
Experts believe that nearly 7 million people in the United States have Angina, and Angina occurs equally in men and women. Not all chest pain or discomfort is a sign of Coronary Heart Disease. So, what exactly is Angina?
Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry was founded after CEO and Owner, LeAnn Carlson, created a stylish, interchangeable medical alert bracelet for a teenage girl with Type 1 Diabetes who simply refused to wear the unattractive, uncomfortable medical alert jewelry of the past. Since making that very first bracelet in 2001, Type 1 Diabetes has remained a high priority here at Lauren’s Hope. In addition to regularly attending diabetes events in our community; sending gift certificates, donations, and other forms of support to diabetes-related events and organizations around the world; and making a concerted effort to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes on a regular basis, Lauren’s Hope has donated well over $100,000 to the JDRF. When we say T1D is important around here, we really do mean it.
In April 2011, I had been a Lauren’s Hope customer for a while already, and I was excited to share my family’s story on the LH blog. Jenna White interviewed me about my little family, my son’s autism, and why I believe so strongly that children with autism need to wear medical ID jewelry at all times.
At Lauren’s Hope, we have a wall filled with customers’ letters. Several of us keep “love letter” files in our desk drawers, many accompanied by wonderful photographs of the incredible people we are fortunate enough to have as lifelong customers. Hearing from our customers is one of our favorite parts of what we do here at LH. We are consistently humbled by customers’ stories of hope, gratitude, tenacity, and love.
Kathi Roberts first discovered Lauren's Hope Medical ID Jewelry about 5 years ago when she became a dialysis patient but her journey started long before.
Last month, a customer contacted us here at Lauren’s Hope, looking for a solution to her medical alert jewelry challenge: she has very petite wrists and felt most medical ID bracelets were just too large for her taste. Shelley, 32, a state government employee in Nebraska, explains, “I believe it’s very important in the event of a medical emergency that I have some piece of identifying information on me, especially if I'm unable to speak up for myself. A piece of ID jewelry could potentially be life-saving [because] I have a medication allergy, a food allergy and wear a piece of durable medical equipment daily to manage a chronic health condition.”
The thyroid is a gland I'd never really heard much about until a few years ago. In fact, a few short years ago, I probably couldn't have told you what it does, where it is or why we all have one.
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.
