Meet Koryn Hutchison. She is married to a military officer and is a mother of three sons and a daughter. She enjoys walking, cooking, baking, kayaking, shopping and beading. Koryn, likes so many other women, is currently undergoing chemo therapy for breast cancer. Her etsy shops are a great means of coping and staying productive.
MothersPreciousGems, named for Koryn’s four “precious gems,” features custom designed mothers’ and children’s jewelry, as well as cancer/disease awareness jewelry. Koryn donates 10% of MothersPreciousGems proceeds to the American Cancer Society. In November 2008, Koryn opened BosomBuddies, a shop that features great gifts and products there for breast cancer patients. 100% of shop profits are donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation for cancer research.
