The Simmons Cancer Institute (SCI) at SIU’s release of butterflies is a beautiful way to honor the living and celebrate the memory of loved ones by sponsoring a butterfly in their names. The ceremony will include the public reading of the names of those being honored and/or remembered, music, inspirational readings, and a magnificent release of butterflies. The emergence of a butterfly is a sign of renewal of life and its flight symbolizes freedom and happiness.
