A couple months ago, Jodie Hommer, founder of the Spokane Food Allergy Support Network, gave me one of these amazing bracelets for my son Lennon. Lennon absolutely loved it, and had the best time popping in his allergen indicators. One of the coolest things about this bracelet is its flexibility, and I don’t mean just the stretchy rubber band. I mean, that it lets you change the allergen indicators, based upon the ever shifting landscape of food allergies. For example, in the old days, Lennon had life threatening food allergies to dairy and soy. He outgrew both those allergies by the time he was six, but then developed new allergies to tree nuts and shellfish. (there was also a brief period of wheat allergy and supposedly egg). This bracelet lets you customize your medi alert, over and over again. (hopefully one day, your child will just get to wear the cool orange band, with nothing inserted into it!).
