Consider the situation – you have carcinoid or another neuroendocrine cancer and you have a medical emergency, perhaps you go into carcinoid crisis or you can’t speak. A medical ID bracelet or charm may save your life. And now you can buy one that is engraved with a zebra head and the words carcinoid cancer. Medical ID jewelry is available through www.barkingzebra.net, Lifesavers.
Many carcinoid patients also keep a flash drive on a keychain with all of their medical information and instructions about how they should be handled in a crisis situation. Information about looking for your flash drive can also be engraved on a medical ID bracelet or charm.
MedicAlert, http://www.medicalert.org, is another source for medical ID jewelry. MedicAlert Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing 24-hour emergency medical information and identification service.
