A creative comeback.

What do you do when diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening disease that forces you to live your life behind a mask?

Sarah, a MedicAlert member since 1984, didn’t have time for a cold, much less a rare, life-threatening disease. She was too busy raising two kids and working as an executive at an advertising and marketing firm to face a diagnosis of primary amyloidosis.

Doctors were baffled. Sarah was too young for this, and she felt fine. Did she really have to deal with this now? But her doctors insisted that she take action, before the disease shut down her kidneys.
