like many things, adyaid was created out of necessity. — in fall 2015, my daughter Adyson was diagnosed with MELAS, a rare mitochondrial disease. this complex health condition requires a deep understanding of medical precautions, treatment protocols, medication allergies, etc. we quickly became her biggest advocate, researcher, caregiver, and medical records keeper. Adyson’s extensive care team of specialists and doctors stretches across the country, all of which recommended she wear a medical ID bracelet. there is no way to capture her complicated condition in just a few words, so i set out to create a solution for my daughter and others in similar situations. — thus, adyaid was born.
