What’s Happening Now
CARES has partnered with Lauren’s Hope Medical I.D. Jewelry. Click the image on the left, to order today and CARES will receive 5% of your purchase!
In 2001, Lauren’s Hope introduced the very first interchangeable medical ID bracelet, and overnight, people who had grudgingly worn, or even refused to wear, the standard, plain metal medical ID bracelets of the past suddenly had attractive, durable, stylish options they could enjoy wearing and change to suit their mood, outfit, or activity.
Today, more than 400,000 people wear Lauren’s Hope medical IDs every day. The ever-expanding line of medical ID bracelets, necklaces, anklets, charms, bag tags, and more is always on-trend, made to the highest quality, and guaranteed to meet your needs and expectations.
Who Is Lauren?
The original interchangeable medical ID bracelet was made for Lauren, a 13 year old with diabetes who refused to wear medical ID jewelry because, as she said, ‘It’s ugly and draws attention to my illness.’ So they set out to design a medical alert bracelet that Lauren, and the millions of people like her who avoided medical IDs when they really needed them, would actually enjoy wearing.
