When people think of reasons a person would wear medical ID jewelry, they typically list things like diabetes, food allergies, drug allergies, epilepsy, heart conditions, and Alzheimer's. And while all of these conditions are important reasons to wear medical alert jewelry, there is one group of conditions that is largely overlooked: mental health disorders.

Talking about health care surrogates, power of attorney representatives, medical proxies, and advance directives is something most people avoid. It’s natural to think we have time to deal with these issues or say, “Oh, I really need to look into that someday.” The truth is, “someday” often gets pushed off again and again until it’s really too late.


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. 


Teaming Up For T1D: Introducing Kids With Courage

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.

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.

Lettuce Wraps

The Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is well into its third week, and things are going pretty well around here! There's been quite a bit of recipe-sharing and leftovers-swapping happening, which is a lot of fun! We've also been sharing resources, such as smaller, local meat markets and out-of-the-way health food stores with good prices. It's really great seeing everyone working toward their goals and supporting one another in the process!


Healthcare Apps Are The Wave of The Future

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!
