I want to thank you for your service. My father was in the Army and son, that just graduated from college, is going into the Air Force. The Epilepsy bracelet that you made for me is awesome. The quality of it is wonderful. I never take it off. I may need to buy more for the colors. Unfortunately, there are no procedures in a work environment so I had to resign. This bracelet means to world to me. It is just important as my wedding band. Thank you again for this bracelet and I would never purchase another one from anywhere else.

Thank you for your service to our country! My father was in the Navy Seabees during WWII and my son was in the Air Force for 6 years. My father-in-law was in the Army during the Korean war and a nephew was in the Marines so the military is very important to me. I ordered an Ovarian Cancer bracelet because I have a sister-in-law who has been battling it for several years. It is wonderful and I love it. You did a fantastic job and I hope to place another order soon! Thank you!

Michael! Good to meet you. I got my Stroke/Blood Thinner bracelet today and it is awesome! I posted the picture of the bracelet for all my friends to admire. I also shared the website hoping to increase interest in what you and the other veterans do. I, as do my family and friends, are profoundly thankful for your dedication and service to our country. I am glad men and women of your caliber are on watch every day 24/7. Thank you so very much, Michael. I appreciate the beautiful cord medical identification bracelet you lovingly wove for me. I will wear it proudly every day, Thank you, thank you and thank you! Barbara

I received my Colts keychain yesterday and just love it. I’ll be showing everyone. The military is near and dear to my heart. My dad was in the USN, nephew is currently serving in the USA and I’ve had the pleasure of supporting a USN program for 20+ years!
Take care and thanks again!

I just got my medical alert bracelet. Thank you for such a great job! I am wishing I had put asthma on it now too, but definitely can on the next one.
I love the colors I picked, they look really nice together. The clasp is a new type to me, but working well.
As the widow of a Vietnam vet; mom of two Saudi vets; and a son about to retire as a MSgt, I appreciate your sacrifice, and support your organization by happily buying from you, and also donating – in memory of my late husband. He was a great man, devastated and disabled by PTSD. I am so grateful you guys are getting help. I proudly display my 22 emblem too. It breaks my heart what it stands for. Praying for each of you who have made something for me, and sent me your card with info. God bless you all.

First and foremost, thank you for your service to our country!!!!! It is very much appreciated. The Epilepsy bracelet you made for me is amazing. I will wear it with pride. It also will be very helpful to my situation if I were to have a seizure outside of the presence of family and friends. It will help people to assist me appropriately. I have tried wearing many forms of medical identification over the past 45 years and the para-cord bracelets are the most effective. It means even more to me that in the process I can support such a good cause. I wish you the best of health and will continue to support handmadebyheros.
With Much Gratitude,
