Bronson Hill Arts: Butterfly Notecards

My dear friend and artisan, Barb, over at Bronson Hill Arts has designed a lovely set of handmade butterfly notecards and grouped them into a collection called the Flights of Life Collection.

There are four different butterfly designs in the collection set. Aside from the obvious (how beautiful they are!), Barb has graciously offered to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each set to the Lungs for Life Foundation.

These cards have such a variety of uses from a simple handwritten note to a friend to a, birthday card, get well card (perfect for someone recouping in the hospital), 'just because' card or really any occasion. Your purchase will not only support artisan handmade goods, it will also support the mission of the Lungs for Life Foundation.

To order your collection set, simply visit Barb's blog and click on the "ordering" page.

A special THANK YOU to Barb for joining in the support of the Lungs for Life Breathe Blog and for being a sponsoring supporter.

Cystic Fibrosis Patient Becomes Successful Model

A regular hospital visit, to receive treatment for her cystic fibrosis, catapulted Cassie Hawthorne, 22, into the modeling world.

Cassie agreed to have her picture taken for the Birmingham Children's Hospitals' annual book and the photographer who snapped her shots, recommended she visit his studio. Coincidentally, his studio was also above a modeling agency. The rest, as they say, is history.

Her successful modeling career and resume includes promotional work for Tesco and hair emporium Umberto Giannini on TV and in magazines. Cassie was also chosen to front this year's Cystic Fibrosis week, which begins May 14.

Cassie says, modeling gives her the opportunity to glam it up and allows her to forget, if just for a little while, that she has cystic fibrosis. She adds, having the illness gives her the drive to just do things because she never knows what later will bring.

With determination like that Cassie has a bright future ahead of her and is a true inspiration to all who have cystic fibrosis!


About This Blog

Welcome to the Lungs for Life BREATHE blog. It is here that I hope to keep you informed, provide resources and just stay in touch with asthma, cystic fibrosis, organ donation and transplant communities.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you.


The teal-green lung(s) graphic images were designed and generously donated to Lungs for Life by a young man, James Binegar, who lost his fight with cystic fibrosis while waiting transplant. We deeply appreciate James' work on our graphics and for donating his time to LFL. He will be missed but his memory will live on through our use of his graphics.
