Member Story

Sonja, Tauranga

Why I joined

I have been a Medic Alert member for almost 20 years after I had a severe allergic reaction to penicillin. About 10 years ago my ID bracelet broke and I have been carrying it around in my purse thinking that I would get round to fixing it one day.

Why you should join

A few weeks ago I had a minor accident and thankfully was able to tell medical staff of my allergy but it made me realize that had I not been able to communicate I could have been in real trouble. So I decided to was time to act, renew my membership and update my ID so that I can have that piece of mind.
