Story Told By Mother of MedicAlert Kid Smart® Customer
Our middle son Brandon was diagnosed with Autism shortly after his second birthday. Over the years, my ability to stay home and be with Brandon at all times before and after school has been a blessing, especially since he has developed a strong tendency to wander.
Although he was diagnosed with autism at a very young age, 20-year old Matthew didn’t have a wandering incident until he became a teenager. After first wandering from his high school campus and a few months later, leaving the house in the middle of the night, Matthew’s mother Bonnie decided it was time to enroll him in MedicAlert.
As National Nutrition Month comes to an end, it's important for us to continue making healthier food choices. Wholesome nutrtion is essential to our overall health and well-being, and creating a balanced diet for our kids beginning at a young age will help set the standard for their eating patterns in the years to come.
Do you know someone living with Multiple Sclerosis? If so, this month serves as an additional opportunity to take the time to show you care about them. It’s important to keep in mind that living with a disability can make people feel helpless, inadequate, and at times like they don’t matter anymore.
