Every day, we have the opportunity to speak with Lauren's Hope customers, and many call because they're simply not sure what to engrave on medical ID jewelry. This is certainly something worth spending time considering, as your medical alert bracelet is the one thing that can always be counted on to advocate for you in those scary moments when you simply cannot do so for yourself.
So far at my time here at Lauren’s Hope, I’ve had the privilege of hearing some really inspiring stories from and about Lauren’s Hope customers. This one, though, I found to be especially neat because it involves our very own Lauren, the namesake of our company.
Years ago, I learned about Durable Medical Equipment (DME) companies when my husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea and had to get a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine. I quickly learned that within our insurance policy, there was a little section on which medical devices were covered, when, why, how often, how much, and for which conditions. It was confusing to say the least. Fortunately, my husband went to our approved local DME shop, got fitted for his alien space helmet (have you seen one of these things?), and that was the end of that. Every year or so he would go get updated equipment, but really, there wasn't much to it.
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.
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.”
Well, it's been a month, and our first-ever Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is complete! Here's a rundown of our team's experience. You'll see "After" shots throughout the article, and our "Before" pics at the bottom. Enjoy!
Well, folks, we're in the home stretch! The 2014 Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is coming to a close, and it has been an incredible month around here! We are excited to share our "After" photos with you when we take them next week. If you've taken before and after shots you'd like to share, please email them to email@example.com by the end of the day Monday, March 3, and we'll include them in our month-ending article!
Heart Health Awareness Month is almost over, and we've really been in the spirit here at Lauren's Hope Medical ID Jewelry! We've been promoting heart health all month long:
Last year, we wrote about the Grant family, one of the few families in the country impacted by LEOPARD Syndrome, also called Noonan Syndrome with Multiple Lentigines (NSwML). So when Lauren’s Hope customer, Tammy Bowers, called to tell us about her newest project, a healthcare app inspired by her son who has LEOPARD Syndrome, we were pretty excited to find out that not only does she know the Grants, she’s actually met them too!
Today is National Wear Red Day! The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women initiative is celebrating the 10th year of Wear Red Day with the hope that one day, we won't need it anymore.
