Emergency Medical Locators
Emergency Medical Locators for Adoptees
(EMLA) is a nonprofit organization that conducts free biological searches
for those who are in critical need of their family medical histories in
times of life-threatening medical crisis.
Each year, thousands of adopted men,
women, and children lose their precious lives to catastrophic illnesses
because they are unaware of their biological medical histories. Many more
live day to day without knowing that they are at risk of contracting any
number of disorders—including diabetes, heart disease, and many forms of
cancer —that could be effectively treated, if not prevented, had they sufficient
time, adequate information, and access to what is rightfully theirs: their
family medical histories.
EMLA is equipped with a worldwide, around-the-clock
team of expert emergency medical locators who have successfully retrieved
vital information on behalf of countless adoptees facing medical emergencies.
This information has ranged from critical data on familial disorders to
links that have resulted in lifesaving bone-marrow transplants.
The backbone of EMLA is a team that
includes not only emergency medical locators but also research specialists
and professional fundraisers, all of whom offer their time and commitment
on a purely voluntary basis. These individuals could be anyone—your next-door
neighbors, coworkers, community librarians, teachers, nurses, or clergymen.
All, however, are linked by their belief that the lack of a family medical
history is no reason to die.
Emergency Medical Locators is current
with the laws and regulations covering open records, as well as keeping
the public updated on their services, projects, and fundraising events.
It is EMLA's policy not to charge for any search that's conducted. We believe
no one should be without their medical history.
The backbone of Emergency Medical Locators
is a not only a team of Emergency Medical Locators, but also Research Specialists
and Grant Writers who offer their time and commitment on a voluntary basis.
These individuals are people who could be your next-door neighbors, coworkers,
community librarians, teachers, nurses, private investigators, and clergymen
and women, who work traditional jobs, but set aside their time to save
lives who believe a lack of Family history is no reason to die.
