This post is brought to you by our very special customer, Sharon Sebolt. Sharon and her son Leo first shared their story last September.

Blood cannot clot properly to stop bleeding in persons with Hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

This post is brought to you by a very special customer of ours, Lindsey Maricic. My name is Lindsey Maricic and I'm a Type 1 Diabetic. I am also a soccer player and I play division 1 college soccer for Cal State Fullerton. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago and have been struggling with playing sports and my health the whole time.
Once diagnosed with a medical condition such as diabetes, food allergies and heart disease or if you've had gastric bypass surgery, wearing a life saving medical alert becomes a necessity. Perhaps you've done some research on the internet and seen a vast array of styles, prices and quality. Are you overwhelmed and finding it hard to pinpoint exactly which type of medical alert will be conducive to your lifestyle? Are you wanting to find a medical alert that is durable, long lasting and looks good at the same time?
What a wonderful Free Stuff Friday this week has been! Thank you to everyone who entered the contest, shared their stories and joined in the fun.

This post is brought to you by a special customer of ours, Kristi Domke. Hello Lauren's Hope blog readers! Much like Lauren's Hope, I have dedicated my life to helping those struggling with diabetes. I am happy to share my story with you and tell you about myself, my personal experience with T1D, and my involvement with D.R.E.A.M., the organization that my life with diabetes has brought me to become a part of. Please read this post and we can all come together as we dream for a cure and make a difference!
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes it is important that you wear a diabetes medical alert bracelet. Your diabetes bracelet will contain important medical history and information that will help first responders, EMT's and paramedics treat you quickly. Once informed of your condition and medical needs first responders are able to efficiently and effectively offer you the best possible care.
This post is brought to you by our very own silversmith. Ann Kathryn came to Lauren's Hope with a metal and jewelry design degree and has wowed us with her eye for design, creativity and skill. She wanted to share with all of you her thoughts on creating custom medical alert jewelry for Lauren's Hope customers.
Ethan was diagnosed with an anaphylactic peanut allergy when he was eighteen months old. He had a severe reaction to just a taste of peanut butter. His face turned red and blotchy with severe hives. His face and his tongue immediately began to swell and he choked and gasped for breath. In this brief moment, everything about Ethan’s life and ours changed forever.
Have you found yourself asking the question, "What's new in the Lauren's Hope engraving department?" Well, I will start with telling you what's new with the engraver. My name is Bryce and I am the master engraver here at Lauren's Hope. I'm the friendly guy who calls with questions about the medical information you'd like engraved on your medical ID tag. I ask questions like, "Can I abbreviate penicillin to PCN?" and "I'd like to suggest a better way to list your emergency contact information." The reason why I spend time calling you regarding your engraving is because I know how important all of your medical information is and I want to make sure that I engrave your vital information in the best possible way. I'm a stickler for centered and legible engraving and like making helpful suggestions. I recognize the fact that every medical ID tag is special and unique, just like you! I love knowing that I am helping people communicate their medical conditions to paramedics, EMT's and first responders in the event of an emergency. I love having a job where I feel like I am doing something important.
