That's why we LOVE Lauren's Hope! No matter what condition or allergy you might need others to know about in an emergency situation, they've got you covered....and with style!
Bean is a true girly girl and has always been into jewelry. So, getting her to wear a medical ID bracelet has never been an issue. However, she does like to coordinate what she's wearing with the bracelet, so that can get a bit tricky. :)
When I was contacted by Lauren's Hope to test out a bracelet, I jumped at the chance! I have been a customer of theirs since Bean was dx'ed...within the first couple of months she was sporting one of their bracelets. I know, and appreciate, the quality and variety of their products. From the basics to the glamorous, everyone can find what they need.
Bean was beyond excited to choose a bracelet to test out....and even more excited when it arrived!
She picked one of the triple strand bracelets with the purple aluminum tag.
I love that they have so many choices for the tag part of the bracelet. Anything from your 'standard' sliver tag with a red caduceus to, well, purple!
The underside of the tag has room for 5 lines of engraving, so there's plenty of room to put important (life saving!) information. On Bean's tag is her name, the fact that she has T1 and is on the Omnipod insulin pump, is allergic to amoxicillin, my cell number and Ubergeek's cell number. Yes, it all fits (with a few abbreviations) and is easy to read!
Bean has been wearing her bracelet since the moment it came out of the package! It's just part of her and I love that. She doesn't even know it's there...which is saying something for a triple strand, beaded bracelet!

With her Lauren's Hope bracelet on, Bean is able to provide the most important information needed to help her in an emergency, even if she's unable to provide it herself. It's an added layer of security that helps her feel safe and helps me feel safe for her.
As you can see from the pictures, Bean has done just about everything in her bracelet and it's hanging tough! Sure, there are a few scratches on her tag, but it doesn't effect the immediate identification that it's a medical bracelet and since the engraving is on the inside of the tag, it's protected and stays easy to read.
Like I said earlier, Bean has had a Lauren's Hope bracelet since the early days of this crazy D life that started for us just over three years ago. We have a few different styles and a couple of different tags. I love that they are all interchangeable so she can mix and match. And, even with all the wear, they all have stood the test of a very active girl and are still in very good condition! The tags are very readable and the bracelets still look great.
I know there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to medical jewelry, but I have to tell you that I have found the items we have from Lauren's Hope to be outstanding in quality and design. It's always the first place I think of whenever Bean needs/wants something new or different and when making recommendations to others who are looking for medical alert jewelry.
Keep an eye out in early August because I've been invited to do a guest post on the Lauren's Hope Bog AND we will be doing a GIVE AWAY just in time for the 'back to school' shopping frenzy!
Lauren's Hope sent Bean her bracelet free of charge and I was asked to blog about it. If I had not been impressed with this company already, or if this bracelet wasn't fabulous, I would have told you. :)
