A Symbol of Hope

Join us in celebrating resilience and support for those impacted by
breast cancer all throughout the month of February.

 

ABOUT OUR BUTTERFLY MOSAIC

We are proud to reveal our life-size glass butterfly mosaic created by artist Edwin Gil, adorned with the fingerprints of Survivors, Thrivers and CBF advocates a permanent fixture now displayed in the foyer of The Pink House.

Our monarch butterfly stands as a symbol of unity and strength. Each glass piece, embedded with the fingerprints of those touched by breast cancer, reflects the interconnectedness of our community. As Edwin Gil describes his creation, "It serves as a reminder that even in challenging times, when we gather all the pieces together, we can create our own masterpiece within ourselves."

THE MEANING BEHIND OUR BUTTERFLY 

Our monarch butterfly logo is a powerful representation of our organization, drawing a poignant parallel between the breast cancer journey and the transformative stages of a butterfly's life. Mirroring the stages of metamorphosis, the logo beautifully conveys the evolution from a caterpillar--initially earthbound and unremarkable--to a magnificent butterfly soaring freely without limitations. 

At the heart of the logo lies a breast cancer ribbon, symbolizing the body of the butterfly and, by extension, the resilience of those on the breast cancer journey. Above the ribbon floats a small unclosed circle, emblematic of the human head, highlighting the mental and emotional dimensions of the transformative process. The butterfly's wings, designed to exude elegance, create the illusion of graceful flight, encapsulating the breast cancer journey as a voyage marked by beauty and poise.

This thoughtful combination of elements in our logo serve as a visual representation of the organization's commitment to supporting individuals through their unique and transformative breast cancer journey, fostering a sense of beauty, strength, and boundless possibility.
