Diabetic In Acton : Rachel Tobin

I found this really awesome website for jewelry made by an inspiring girl. Her name is Rachel Tobin and she owns  Rachels Cure By Design and raise money for JDRF. This is the her story I got from her website....

In 2005, at the age of 12, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.  Since then, I’ve been supporting the work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and their mission to find a cure for diabetes through the support of research.
To help this important organization, I began designing and selling a unique collection of handmade beaded bracelets and donating a portion of the proceeds.  I am proud to report that from the sales of my Cure by Design jewelry, I have donated over $42,000 to the JDRF Western PA Chapter.
I invite you to visit often as I continue to create new designs for my jewelry and add to my Cure by Design product line.
All of my bracelets have a sterling silver “hope” charm that symbolizes my hope for a cure for diabetes.  This charm can be your symbol of “hope” for opportunities and challenges you and your family may face as well.  On behalf of myself and the 23.6 million people who suffer from diabetes, thank you for your kindness and support!

Isn't that so cool how she took charge of it and has made such a difference with something that many people stuggle with and often give into defeat. Thanks Rachel you are amazing.
