CureDuchenne announces a new initiative to deliver free medical ID bracelets to individuals in the United States living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
With an initial limited quantity of 1,200 bracelets supplied by MyID, a leading provider of medical bracelets, they will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Each bracelet is associated with a customizable user profile that comes prefilled with emergency information written specifically for individuals living with Duchenne.
“2020 has come with many challenges, so we are excited to offer our community a special gift of ‘peace of mind’ for the holidays this year. These bracelets could prove lifesaving for our community.
“Emergency professionals and first responders will be able to have easy and quick access to information about Duchenne. We can’t always be with our boys, so knowing that if something does happen, the ones that help them first will have this knowledge is crucial.”
— Debra Miller, Founder and CEO, CureDuchenne
