Canines-n-Kids used Reminderband wristbands as a giveaway to participants at their “Paws for a Cure Summit” last summer in Washington, DC, and at their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” in October of 2017, in Brambleton, VA.

Man’s Best Friend Is A Kid’s Best Friend in Cancer
Most people don’t realize that both children and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia.

Canines-N-Kids Foundation states:  “16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year.  With only three new kids’ cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs; only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology.  Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer. 50% of all dogs over the age of ten die from their disease and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.”

Through treating cancer in dogs, we can better learn how to help children with those same cancers.  A cure for one aids in curing the other.

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.

Additional Information on Childhood Cancer

“Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States.  Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer and the average age of diagnosis is 6. Cancer affects all ethnic, gender, and socio-economic groups and more than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year.”  (https://curesearch.org/Incidence-Rates-Over-Time)

wheel-to-surf-logo.png
Wheel to Surf provides an opportunity to enjoy a day surfing for people with any type of disability (physical, cognitive, emotional).

Wheel to Surf started as a way for Brock Johnson, founder and Coastal Adaptive Sports Para-Olympic Club President, to get back into the water. After a diving accident in May of 2011 left him a quadriplegic, Brock was more distressed about not being able to surf than he was about losing the ability to walk.

After being home for a few months, Brock attended an event by Life Rolls On and Ocean Cure (in Wilmington, NC) and immediately asked CAS to please consider hosting one of these events back in Myrtle Beach.

Fast forward one year…local Cherry Grove residents Luke Sharp and Brandon Bellegarde, along with their wives, volunteered at the first WtS Event held by CAS. Luke and Brandon are both crazy about surfing, and as luck would have it, they were assigned to help Brock surf that day. As they say, the rest is history.

Immediately after their day volunteering, the men, along with their wives, Erin and Cara, knew they wanted to do something to help Brock and others get back in the water regularly instead of just at these special events. They contacted Brock about starting the Adaptive Surf Project and the two groups have been working in tandem to provide the ‘muscle and surf knowledge’ needed to get the surfers in the water and onto some awesome waves for the last 5 years!!!

“In our 6th year of Wheel to Surf, we not only have four major events planned, from North Myrtle to Folly Beach in Charleston but also traveled to Colombia to start an ASP Chapter. Thanks to the donation of a beach wheelchair and adaptive surfboard, the group has committed to holding monthly Wheel to Surf events. ASP also holds a ‘mini’ WtS each month from June to November in Cherry Grove to ensure folks experience the stoke monthly.”

“ASP also raises funds to build custom adaptive surfboards for participants and travels with our surfers to compete in local, regional, and national competitions.”

Please see a few of the news features about the most recent Wheel to Surf as well as Brock’s individual Facebook posts about some of the competitions ASP has helped him (and other surfers) to enter.

“We use the Reminderband wristbands as business cards.”

Brock, founder of Wheel to Surf, had been wanting to purchase bands.

“But as a non-profit, we never seemed to have enough extra money to buy them to just ‘give away’.”
Enter Stephanie Parsons, Brock’s sister-in-law, who decided to fund the first 100 Reminderband wristbands for Wheel to Surf.

“We are now on order #3 and getting 300 this time!!! Not only does Brock love using the silicone bands to spread the stoke, but it also allows us to always have a ‘card’ with us to share.”

“We originally were selling the wristbands to try to make enough to purchase more. But after being asked repeatedly for our contact info and not having anything with us while out surfing, we decided to make the investment and use them as our business cards. Board members, surfers, and volunteers put a wristband on each day and hope by the end of the day we have not only given it away but maybe one or two more. I’ve been known to take them off everyone in the group so we have enough to share :-)”

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

 

DT-Necklace-Silver.png

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. Don’t forget, we’re offering discounted wristbands if it’s your first order, so now is a great time to give it a try!

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.

Do you need to share a message that stays with people and leaves an impact?

25881842_atkins_devay_and_crowd.jpeg

Devay Campbell is a career coach and business mentor who wants to do just that. She is hosting a Classroom to Career tour to “empower students and equip them with the knowledge they need to get hired and be successful in their careers.” Her plan is to be able to reach one thousand students for the 2017-18 school year.

Devay has designed her own wristbands with a message she hopes will inspire students to remain ambitious and to continue to pursue what they want out of their lives and careers.

unnamed-10.png

She plans to use them to promote her message and serve as a tangible reminder to “always dream no matter what.”

“After so long, we think it is too late.” Says Devay, “We all need a reminder that it is never too late to follow and achieve our dreams. I want to leave this message behind with the students!”

We love this idea and we wish Devay the very best of luck in her tour. To learn more, visit her Facebook page. Want to be featured in our next Feature Friday? Send us an email about what you’re doing with your cause or event, as well as any pictures you’d like us to use. For more ideas on how to make an event or campaign extra awesome, check out reminderband.com today!

Until next time!
