Nick Whatcott Fights Cancer.jpg

At the start of 2018, six-year-old Nixon Whatcott was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma.  He had been complaining that his leg hurt for a couple of weeks. Doctors performed an x-ray where they found tumors in his femur. Further tests at Primary Children’s Hospital in Utah showed the tumors were malignant and had spread to his lungs. Osteosarcoma is a very rare and aggressive cancer. Nixon started aggressive chemotherapy that lasted 10 weeks, at which point they did additional tests and scans to evaluate what the next step would be in his treatment.

Nixon’s father, Nick Whatcott, said:  “Nixon is a fighter, he is strong, and if anyone can beat this it will be him! This boy is fighting for his life.  [Our] family is overwhelmed by the love and outreach we have received and continue to receive! [We] have an army of support here and an army of angels above!  Nick’s Facebook page is available to give family and friends updates as he takes on this beast and punches it in the face!”

Nixon’s family is using Reminderband wristbands to raise money for Nixon’s treatment and other expenses.

Debossed Wristbands are as popular as ever. Often times, the most desirable look is to have the imprint in a different color, but that can take a bit of extra time. That’s where the Dual-Layer bracelets come in. If you’re looking for high-quality rubber bracelets on the cheap and with a fast turnaround, look no further.

Dual Layer Band.pngA Dual-Layer Wristband has all the awesome advantages of traditional, “LIVESTRONG”-style bracelets, but with a twist: instead of painting a spray or “silicoat” on the surface of the wristband, we actually fuse two different-colored layers of our sturdy 100% silicone material together. Then we engrave your personalized message and/or artwork through that top layer for a vivid contrast! It’s our very own proprietary design you won’t find anywhere else.DualLayer-AquaHotPink.pngUnlike silicoat or color-coated wristbands, the color on our Dual-Layer wristbands won’t rub away or wear off. They also have a sleek, semi-matte feel to them, without the sticky, tacky texture. As always, our wristbands feel like rubber but are pure silicone and also latex-free. Did we mention we also offer them in a sweet assortment of eye-popping color combinations?

Classic-Debossed-EPI-Pen-Peanut-Allergy

If you are someone who wears a medical identification bracelet or necklace, you are probably well-acquainted with engraved metal bracelets and dog tags. You’re most likely also aware of the hefty price tag that goes along with them.

What you may not be aware of is our nifty medic alert options that are very customizable, and much more affordable than the alternative. Here are just 4 ideas for some solutions that work great for kids or adults:

1. The Classic

black-diabetic-wristband-hero.ac157297877f (1)

Since 2004, we’ve been cranked out millions of these custom silicone wristbands for just about any occasion you can imagine. One of the leading reasons folks personalize a Classic band at Reminderband is to wear as a comfortable, affordable, and much more personally stylish medical identification wristband. Since there is no minimum order requirement, it’s perfect for those who just need to order one or two. As always, choose from our selection of colors, fonts, and free stock clip art to make a wristband that speaks to you.

2. Dog Tags

If you’re one who prefers to sport something around your neck or on a keychain, we have the Dog Tag options, which are made of the same 100% silicone material. These come in two flavors: one with a molded-in medical caduceus on one half and one without. Both are customizable just like our wristbands. You’ll have to be the judge as to which design you like better.

3. Marquee Wristbands

If you want to retain the recognizable shape of the metal bracelets, try our Marquee wristbands. We offer them in a rectangle and oval shape, with the option to personalize to your liking. The thinner back half of the wristbands are great for additional information like phone numbers or medical instruction.

4. Contour Wristbands

Epileptic-Contour.png

Thick and Classy. The Contour band is an upgraded spin off our Classic wristband. Featuring rounded edges, this looks and feels more like a bangle or bracelet and is a nice choice for those who want something extra fashionable as well as practical. Splash some color onto your design with tons of gorgeous shades and accent colors for the text from which to choose.

 

So, which is your favorite style? We recognize how important medical identifiers are for a lot of folks, so we take our quality and designs very seriously. Be sure to check out our full lineup on Reminderband.com to find out how awesome our design experience is. Most styles have no minimum order requirement, and many of our add-ons are free.

Our Friday features really run the gamut of types of events, groups, and individuals and causes. Today, we’d like to briefly spotlight one family and their story of support for their father.

 

25881842_11182935_1484276049.1155.jpg

Amos Abplanalp is known for being a wonderful friend, neighbor, loving husband, and father, high school teacher, coach, a prison counselor, Scoutmaster, and LDS bishop. He has a reputation for helping others and, here at Reminderband, that’s something we can get behind.

unnamed.jpg

Amos was diagnosed in April 2016 with Stage four Colon Cancer. Despite the daily struggles, he still works to provide for his family. There is great familial and community support and love for him, and everyone is cheering him on in his fight against cancer. The events and updates are chronicled through their blog.

unnamed.png

Two runs of wristbands have been ordered up in support of Amos, both touting the #TEAMAMOS hashtag. The first batch was used for a high school fundraiser for the family, which resulted in a sum of $1,200 raised! The second run will be used for awareness. We love this application for the wristbands to support Amos and his family, as well as to spread the awareness to help others!

We wish Amos the and his family the very best. If you would like to support them, check out their gofundme page, and read more about the family’s endeavors on their blog.

Ever wondered what the meaning is behind the increasing amount of purple bracelets these days?

Purple is one of our most oft-requested colors, from custom wristbands to keychains. While most are part of a cause or campaign they’re trying to promote, many are using purple awareness wristbands for their own personal reasons.

Purple Wristbandsv3.jpg

Since we fancy ourselves experts in the realm of awareness bracelets, we decided to talk about some of the most commonly-used reasons for purple bands. In no particular order, here are the Top 8 uses and ideas for purple bracelets:

  1. Epilepsy Awareness – Along with some other notable conditions, this particular item doesn’t get quite enough exposure. Lots of great groups out there are working hard to change that.
  2. Lupus Awareness – Purple has rapidly become associated with Lupus, and we’ve even featured some of the campaigns working to support the cause to get the word out there.
  3. Animal Safety/Shelters – Promoting a respected animal shelter or practices that encourage the rescue, treatment, and safety of animals has been another popular idea for folks to get behind. Many have even had their own logo engraved onto the wristband for that added flare. purple with white2.JPG
  4. Pancreatic Cancer – Whether it’s for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November, or just a way of rallying and supporting a family member, friend, or cancer-fighting community, purple ribbons and wristbands have been well-established as a symbol for this cancer. Common phrases like “Celebrate Hope” are sure to reach a wide audience.
  5. Find a Cure – If it’s for Pancreatic cancer or another condition that needs more treatment and research encouragement, a ribbon keychain or wristband with “Find a Cure” imprinted on it is a colorful and striking way to support the cause.
  6. Alzheimer’s Awareness – Here’s another one that a lot of wonderful people are working to support. Today, the number of people affected by Alzheimer’s is around 5.4 million. Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month is in November.
  7. End Domestic Violence – “Recognize. Report it. Prevent it.” These have been used for some time to give courage and support to victims and those who are aware of a situation which needs to be reported. We’ve seen a myriad of talented groups working hard to spread the word about various causes involving this issue.
  8. Because You Really Like Purple – Sometimes you don’t have a cause to promote and you just need some wristbands for an event, fundraiser, family reunion, or Disneyland trip, or as your own personal Medical Alert ID Bracelet. We get it, Purple is in. We’ve customized boatloads of them for folks since 2004, and the popularity factor is still going strong!

Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC offers resources, connections, and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful.

The YSC was founded in 1998 by three women who were each under age 35 at the time of their diagnosis. Discouraged by the scarcity of resources and awareness of young women with breast cancer, so they formed an alliance through which they could make an impact.

YSC has three charity bike rides each year: one in each of the South, East, and West Coasts. This event, the Tour de Pink (TdP) is “an inspiring three-day charity bike ride, with a one-day option, that raises funds for young women affected by breast cancer.”

These rides are completely equipped with the proper furnishings of bike and motorcycle marshals, vehicle support, and plenty of rest stops. They also have lodging and meals for the three-day riders, who commit to raising $2,500 each.

Rachel Kelley, a three-day rider in the YSC Tour de Pink West Coast, will be selling the wristbands to contribute to her fundraising efforts. All proceeds from her wristbands will be donated to YSC through her fundraising page, here.

Since 1949, the United States has observed Mental Health Awareness Month as a way to encourage education, awareness, and outreach resources across multiple outlets and organizations.RK_Green.pngThe oft-associated green ribbon serves as a reminder and a symbol of support for those suffering from mental illness, as well as a way for organizations to share a message of compassion and understanding for such conditions. Those organizations also serve as advocates to offer resources and to mitigate the stigma often tied to mental illness. From suicide prevention to many other causes, groups of people across the United States are working to further their causes.

We have made ribbons, wristbands, and keychains for many such occasions here at Reminderband. Thank you to all those who are working to help one another!

Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.

11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.

BS-2.jpg

 

Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.

 

To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.

Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:

“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”

You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.

Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”

We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!
