This resilient swallowtail butterfly has obviously weathered some storms and is still enjoying flight on a late summer day, stopping for rest and sustenance along a West Virginia riverbank. This image encourages us to hopeful endurance despite the challenges of our own journeys.


Connie Mae has personally weathered the storm of breast cancer. She has also wept as her mother and two sisters courageously fought the battle for years before the disease took them. This special edition is released to bring a ray of hope and to honor the courage and strength of the many women, their families, and friends who are touched by this storm.


Image is 12" x 9" with 1" white border including the title with small breast cancer ribbon in the bottom border (total 14" x 11")
