Breast Cancer Survivors and Patients Encouraged to Have Medical History Readily Available
Date:10/14/2009

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, according to the American Cancer Society. Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among woman.

To help fight this disease, eMed-ID, the world's first emergency medical information device franchise, will donate $10 for every pink Personal Health Records (PHR) wristband sold to raise awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This pink wristband, as well as other optional styles, contains a USB device that has an individual's personal health history, medications taken, allergies, etc. eMed-ID's proprietary device is designed to expedite emergency responders' treatment of a patient who may not be able to communicate their personal medical information. It also helps consolidate health records and make them accessible to healthcare providers when needed.

"Individuals with breast cancer, as well as survivors of breast cancer, find themselves seeing numerous physicians and managing multiple medications and courses of treatment throughout their illness and beyond," said Lonnie Helgerson, CEO, eMed-ID Franchising, LLC. "As a result, we believe strongly that this group of individuals should have their personal health records consolidated and with them on e-Med-ID's PHR device in case of emergency or other circumstances that require medical history at the ready."

The eMed-ID package is $69.95 and includes the PHR USB device, four eMed-ID caregiver cards, two eMed-ID In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.) refrigerator cards and a bound report. In addition, eMed-ID is the only medical identification product that also provides customers with an optional legally-binding healthcare surrogate, HIPAA release and living will. The company also partners with the "Silver Alert" program, modeled after "Amber Alert," to help protect an increasing number of citizens with cognitive impairments. The pink wristband is just one option. Others include blue wristbands, credit cards and keychains.

"We are honored to join the fight on breast cancer and contribute a portion of the sales of our popular pink wristbands to breast cancer research," said Helgerson. "We've built the eMed-ID business to provide local communities, including people of all ages, with medical services and products that improve the quality of healthcare and save lives. This is just another way to become involved in the health care community and help individuals and families manage their own health."

Consumers can purchase the eMed-ID pink wristband, as well as other products, through eMed-ID's franchise network in cities located throughout the United States. To find your eMed-ID representative, visit www.emed-id.com/find.htm or call 1-866-607-0411.

The company is offering candidates the opportunity with a total investment of less than $10,000. Three-year term financing is available to qualified candidates for approximately $38 a week.
