Super Silicone For Summer Swimmers

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Mon 23, 2012

It’s summer, and that means it’s time for lots and lots of swim time and other water activities as we all try to beat the heat and have some fun. When you’re spending lots of time in the heat, it’s important to have the right medical ID jewelry for your activities. Many medical IDs are not designed to be worn in swimming pools due to the chemicals used in pool water, and some can be damaged by repeated applications of sunscreen. That means for summer camp, swim days, beach time, and all your other outdoor summer fun, switching to silicone medical alert bracelets is a great idea, especially for kids!

What is Juvenile Arthritis?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Fri 20, 2012

What is Juvenile Arthritis?

Most people think of arthritis as something adults, particularly middle-aged and older adults, develop with age. We think of stiff knees and sore fingers, all the typical aches and pains of getting older. But arthritis isn’t specific to adults. In fact, approximately 300,000 American children under 18 have Juvenile arthritis (JA).

What Do I Engrave On My Medical ID Bracelet?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Wed 18, 2012

If there’s one question we get asked the most here at Lauren’s Hope, it’s, “What do I engrave on my medical ID bracelet?” There is, of course, no single answer that applies to everyone because a medical ID tag is as individual as the person who wears it. Fortunately, there some general guidelines we’ve developed over the years, and they should help point you in the right direction.

Be Sunscreen Savvy!

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Mon 16, 2012

We all know we should wear sunscreen daily, but most people still only routinely wear sunscreen when they’re going to be out in the sun for prolonged periods during outdoor activities such as playing at the beach, going to the pool, taking a long bike ride, playing sports, or gardening. No matter when or where you use sunscreen, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has enacted some new guidelines all consumers should know about in order to make informed choices about their sun protection.

Courtney’s Story: Life With Diabetes in The Family

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Wed 11, 2012

Growing Up With Diabetes

It started for me before I had kids. My youngest sister, Marah, was diagnosed with Diabetes when she was 5, which was in 1988. So that’s where Diabetes started with our family. Back then, it was a lot different than the way we do things now. The diet was much more restrictive. You had to eat at particular times and all that kind of stuff. My mom handled the majority of that. Because I was a young teenager, I learned how to help her manage it and knew how to give shots and all that kind of stuff.

Dianne's Story: "The Lung Cancer Game"

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jul, Sun 08, 2012

The Email

One morning this past January, I woke up to an email from my friend, Dianne Caridi, titled, “I have a crazy thought.” Before I even opened it, I knew I’d be on board. I’d been asking Dianne regularly, since her diagnosis with lung cancer three and a half years prior, if there was anything I could do for her and her family, and she had consistently promised to let me know if she needed anything. As far as I was concerned, that email could have read, “I want to go skydiving and I want you to come,” and I’d have signed right up. When your friend has cancer, and she asks you for a favor, you do it, even if you’re fairly sure you’ll pass out from fear of heights.
