Update from "Better Safe than Sorry"

Daniel's Medical ID

The Epilepsy Society of Northwest Florida is proud to announce that we have raised $5,040 through GlobalGiving. This money is used to provide medical ID bracelets to those diagnosed with epilepsy in Northwest Florida. We have currently provided 30 medical IDs!

A medical identification bracelet is a voice, speaking on behalf of an individual when he or she is incapable of speech.  Under emergency circumstances, it is critical that emergency response teams be able to quickly identify an individual’s medical condition and allergies. Without proper ID, common symptoms can be misdiagnosed and appropriate care is jeopardized and delayed. Wearing medical alert jewelry can speed the assessments made by first responders, and healthcare professionals agree that early identification of a medical condition or allergy can save lives. 

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our project!
