I designed this butterfly to raise awareness for the disease EB - Epidermolysis Bullosa.
Children who have this disease are often called butterfly children because their skin is literally as fragile as a butterfly. They live in pain EACH AND EVERY MOMENT of their LIFE!
The butterfly is not perfect in it's pattern, it has signs of being torn and broken down, but it is still beautiful and it is strong. Those who have EB deserve a cure. The deserve to live without excruciating pain. They deserve a cure.

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare genetic disease characterized by the presence of extremely fragile skin and recurrent blister formation, resulting from minor mechanical friction or trauma. This condition is not contagious. An estimated 1 out of every 20,000 live births are affected with some type of EB. The disorder occurs in every racial and ethnic group throughout the world and affects both sexes equally. - See more at: http://www.debra.org/understanding#sthash.YwI3JIY7.dpuf
