Coleen Workman is a talented and successful jewelry designer in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has a relative who was recently diagnosed with sarcoma for the second time. She went through all the treatments two years and ago and it has come back. This time, with a vengeance. She has started treatment again and it’s tough. She is only 49 and has two beautiful grand babies. Additionally, her father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2009. Her family’s story is much like other people when they get the news. Coleen and her three sisters and spent their time finding out everything they could about these awful diseases.
During this time Coleen started making jewelry for family and friends to keep hope and her father in their thoughts and prayers. She wanted to do more and contacted the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and was able to display her jewelry on their website.
