A few years ago, I had a frightening experience while vacationing in Mexico. I became very ill and spent the entire holiday in a wheelchair. Unable to speak the language, I decided not to see a doctor even though I live with a life-threatening allergy to a common ingredient found in prescription and over-the counter pain relievers.
That decision almost cost me my life. When I returned home, I was diagnosed with endocarditis (an infection in the inner lining of the heart chambers and valves) and rushed into emergency, open-heart surgery.
Now I have MedicAlert protection and I feel confident that if my wife, Maxine, or my friends aren’t there to speak for me, MedicAlert will be my voice. More than once, my MedicAlert ID has stopped doctors from giving me potentially dangerous medication by mistake.
I feel comfortable travelling because MedicAlert IDs are engraved with globally recognized medical terminology. Not only that, the 24/7 emergency hotline and family notification service offer protection that I trust one hundred per cent.
I never take my MedicAlert ID off. I even bring an extra one when I’m travelling, just in case.
That’s why I am also a MedicAlert supporter. I want others to enjoy the peace of mind that MedicAlert gives me and my family. If you’ve given in the past, you know that MedicAlert relies on yours and my generosity to provide their life-saving service to children, adults and seniors in need. Your personal gift has the power to save lives.
