Famed artist and cancer survivor has a dream to save 150 million Americans. Fifteen years ago, all of her dreams were nearly cut short when Abbe received the dreaded diagnosis...cancer! After 8 hours of grueling surgery...after 40 heavy radiation treatments...after eight long hospital stays...after many complications...one of which caused a serious heart problem...and then given only 25% of surviving...Abbe is back and contributing to society and to medical organizations that helped save her life.
Concerned for the 150 million Americans struggling with diabetes, heart disease, breast cancer, kidney failure, transplants, Alzheimer’s, and all manner of conditions, including her own scary medical experiences—Abbe saw a critical need to protect people in medical emergencies. She saw too many people refusing to wear a medical ID bracelet only because drugstore bracelets are so ugly and draw too much attention to very personal illnesses.
To overcome this problem, Abbe created fashionable medical bracelets that hide their true purpose—all the while keeping people safe because paramedics are trained to look for any medical information, especially on the wrist. Moving forward, she also wanted to provide a kind and personal service by calling every customer, separating her bracelets from the ordinary...all coming right from her heart and from so many personal setbacks.
What makes her bracelets so beautiful is inspired from a long and successful career as a renowned professional fine artist exhibiting in many shows and galleries in Chicago. Combine that with her worldwide recognition as a famed editorial and commercial illustrator for Fortune 500 companies and magazines such as Playboy, and then you’ll see why her bracelets are so stylish...and so beautiful.
