“I wear my medical alert bracelet much like I wear a seatbelt. I don't expect to ever need it but, because of my extremely complicated medical history, I want first responders to have as much information as quickly as possible in an emergency situation. Like a seatbelt, I put it on automatically in the morning and I feel really odd if I forget to wear it.” – Jay Elliott, of St. Louis, who has Marfan syndrome
