Re: [IP] VENT: Medic Alert - To Andy



Good for you Ann!  I only wish I could afford to pay $400.00 for my
daughter's ID.  I had to quit work and give up my $30,000 a year to care for
my daughter after her diagnosis.  I am truly jealous of Andy!!  :-)  But her
$15.00 bracelet is working fine for now!  I do not always agree with the
"you get what you pay for" syndrome.  Does the quality of any item diminish
because it goes on sale??  We also struggle to pay for supplies monthly.
And we have to shop VERY frugally, but her health and well-being is worth
all of our struggles!!!

Thanks Ann....

Missi
