In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, our call center will be closed Thursday, 11/26 and Friday, 11/27. Our 24/7 emergency line will remain open. Our normal operating hours will resume Monday, 11/30.
Thanksgiving has always been a special time of year for me, just as it is for millions of Americans. Each Thanksgiving, I can’t help but recall all the wonderful memories of past Thanksgivings; the changing leaves, the aroma from the oven, and the deep appreciation and gratitude of being around people I love. Thanksgiving has always been the one day, set aside from all others, in which all of us could come together and be grateful for our family, friends, health, and the time given to all of us.
On the 11th day, of the 11th month, of every year, our country comes together to celebrate our veterans and their incredible service to our nation. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors those that have fallen in battle, Veteran Days honors all American veterans, both living and those that have passed, in order to commemorate and pay tribute to all veterans that have sacrificed so much for our freedoms.
As the weather cools and the fun festivities of the holidays come knocking on our doors, it brings our lives into perspective and reminds us of what truly matters; our family, friends, and good health. Since 1956, MedicAlert Foundation has experienced many holiday seasons, and throughout that time, our staff has been protecting and saving lives by providing first responders and health professionals with vital information to help safeguard you and your loved ones. This will always be our primary mission.
Your MedicAlert ID is amazing! 1) It can speak for you when you cannot and 2) it can spark conversation from people curious enough to ask the reason for your tag when they see it. Win win! And if you are susceptible to a disorder like Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) you are connected to emergency help when needed and you are helping to spread awareness about MH. So, what do you say to people when asked about your ID?
