What’s Happening Now
This year we asked our CAH community, “If you could have one wish granted, what would that wish be?”
We got lots of replies and the wishes varied greatly, but most of the wishes involved improving quality of treatment – more informed doctors, easier ways to take medication like medication pumps and auto-injectors; more awareness and education about adrenal crisis – how to prevent it and what to do if you find yourself in one of these crises; AND of course, the wish for a cure!
During this season of hope and full of wishes, we humbly ask for your financial support so the we may continue making our community’s wishes come true!

The study is for an investigational, once-a-day pill for CAH, designed to correct hormone imbalance and potentially reduce the necessary dose of traditional steroid medications. If you are 18 years of age or older, and have been diagnosed with classic CAH, you may qualify to participate. Participants will receive study-related care and medication at no cost, and compensated for your time and travel.

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.
