We all come across situations that can make daily life a challenge. Whether that's a car that chooses not to start or a life-altering medical diagnosis, we all have situations in life that need to be overcome, no matter how big or small. To Federal Employee and Kansas City native Carla Cona, being hearing impaired is just another one of those daily challenges.


Kids With Courage, Supporting Families With T1D: Part II

  
  
  
Kids With Courage T1D

Recently, we introduced our readers to some new friends of ours, the folks at the Kids With Courage Foundation. Kids With Courage is a Kansas City-area nonprofit organization that supports kids with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. With year-round support, education, social, and resource-oriented events the all-volunteer team at KWC are busy people. Add to that their annual One Inspired Evening Gala and their signature Crates Full of Courage efforts, through which they provide outstanding resources and much-needed support to newly diagnosed families at Children's Mercy Hospital, and you've got one amazing organization.

Angina: Medical IDs Save Heart Patients' Lives

  
  
  
Medical ID for Angina

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?


Teaming Up For T1D: Introducing Kids With Courage

  
  
  
kids with courage, T1D

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.


My Family Has Autism: Lauren's Hope Supports Autism Awareness

  
  
  
Autism Disneyland Will

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.

Hope quote Van Gogh

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.

DT33 Uptown Mini Pink Caduceus Medical ID Dog Tag

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.”


Hashimoto's Runs In the Family

  
  
  
Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

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.
