I travel alone lately more than I have in the past. I often wonder as I walk through the airport what would happen if something happened to me. Would people know if I have been taking medication? Would they know to call my husband or my mom? What about when I am travelling with my children? having four of them it is hard enough to get their birthdays straight some days. How am I going to remember who is allergic to what and who broke what in the past? as a mom and a business woman I see the benefit to this new app from TELUS.

As my children get older and more involved in sports I see the importance of this. So I signed up and filled out all of our information. Registering was quick and easy. Adding information and family members was a breeze. Now I know when my children travel on school trips or across the boarder without me, they will have all of their important info with them. Easily accessed by those who need it when they need it. No more notes in the pocket, calls for info etc. Quick, easy and secure. Best of all, peace of mind.
