My MedicAlert and Me

By Sarah Ackerman   

When I was three years old, I got my first real piece of jewelry. It was silver and gold and customized for me. There was nobody else in the world who could wear this bracelet, and I felt special.

My MedicAlert bracelet has remained on my wrist for the past twenty-one years. It has seen me through every dance performance, breakup, sleepover, and most importantly, allergic reaction. While the styles, allergies, and chain length have changed over the years, one thing remains clear, this bracelet is my lifeline.
