A Mother’s Tale: Why My Daughter Rebecca Wears Medicalert
Picture this. You’re out on the playground when suddenly your child’s face begins to swell up like a balloon. Within seconds she’s gasping for air. Sure, you have the auto-injector, but are you truly prepared for a life-threatening allergic reaction? You have as little as two minutes – maybe even less – to save your child.
With anaphylaxis, every second counts, and that’s why my six-year-old daughter, Rebecca, wears one. In times of a crisis, a MedicAlert bracelet can help speak for you.
Because we took the time to fill out a detailed profile for Rebecca – including possible drug interactions – we feel she’s protected and the peace of mind that brings is priceless. Just knowing that first responders have that information at their fingertips is really reassuring.
Please don’t let ignorance or fear hold you back from protecting your family.
