“My Daughter Charlie is currently 3.5 years old, and she was born with a condition called Septo Optic Dysplasia which is a condition that affects the development of the optic nerves and pituitary gland.
This left Charlie completely blind with no light perception from birth as well as pituitary disfunction.
As the pituitary gland regulates hormone production, Charlie has a range of hormone deficiencies including growth hormone and adrenal insufficiency (cortisol production).
Charlie’s medical ID bracelet informs first responders that she is vision impaired, adrenal insufficient and becomes hypoglycaemic.
Adrenal Crisis is life threatening to my daughter, so Charlie also has a seat belt alert that contains all information about her medical issues and a medical ID carry case that stores her emergency medication if Charlie was to be in an accident or become unwell. This carry case comes with Charlie everywhere she goes.
Due to Charlie’s blindness, she suffers sensory issues so we thought it might be difficult to get Charlie to wear her bracelet, but she absolutely loves it! She calls it her “Special, pretty bracelet”.
She gets several comments from friends and family about her “Special, pretty bracelet” and she never takes it off! We love the products from Emergency ID and will continue to purchase more items as Charlie’s grows!
