October is breast cancer awareness month, so it’s the perfect time to build awareness on this important cause. Providing extra support during a cancer warrior’s battle can make all the difference, so read on for the best ways to use custom silicone wristbands to aid in their journey!

Support

Creating custom breast cancer wristbands can help unite friends and family together as they look for ways to provide support to their newly diagnosed loved one. As Kathleen found, a simple wearable reminder can help you keep loved ones in your heart, mind, and prayers when they’re struggling.

Providing additional support to a cancer warrior’s circle can help strengthen them throughout the difficult times ahead. Add a personalized hashtag to show your support, and a comforting phrase to help build a mantra of strength and courage. Many customers choose a hashtag with their last name in it for their breast cancer bracelets, such as #SmithStrong. These custom rubber bracelets are often given to the group of individuals supporting the patient’s journey.

These messages are often accompanied by awareness ribbons, heart clipart, or other graphics from our free art library.


Fundraising

It’s no secret that medical expenses rack up quickly, especially with something aggressive like breast cancer that requires multiple treatments and doctor visits. Joseph, along with many other customers, has found that designing and selling breast cancer awareness bracelets is a great way to build awareness for breast cancer while simultaneously raising funds.

Common phrases to include on fundraising wristbands for breast cancer awareness are: Find a Cure, #IRunForSydney (or other event hashtag or name), or messaging indicating what the funds are being raised for (research, support, etc.).


Motivation & Inspiration

It’s extremely easy to lose hope when life throws a curveball like breast cancer at you. As Cas and her family found, custom cancer bracelets can help provide another source of inspiration and give you hope for the future as you look to your ‘circle of strength’.

Businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations often create custom breast cancer bracelets in the fall for educational events to build awareness. How far the cancerous cells have spread at the time of diagnosis is critical, so providing a reminder of how important it is to follow recommended safety precautions and check for abnormalities could be life-changing. This is just one reason why custom breast cancer awareness bracelets are a great addition to an educational event, class, or assembly.

Common phrases to include: breast cancer awareness, supportive phrases, and personalized hashtags like #KendraStrong.


Medical IDs

Whether your loved one is newly diagnosed, receiving regular treatments, or is now cancer-free, having a comfortable medical ID is crucial to ensure proper treatment is received during emergencies. Judy ordered an eye-catching medical wristband for her mom so she could have peace of mind that medical professionals would know her mother’s pre-existing medical conditions in an emergency situation.

Have an Allergy or Health Risk? Here are 4 Cool Medic Alert Ideas

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.

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

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.
