The Butterfly Connection is a partnership between the Florida Museum of Natural History, Climb for Cancer FoundationArts in Medicine and UF Health to provide complimentary tickets to the Butterfly Rainforest and featured exhibit for cancer patients and their caregivers. This provides a memorable experience and a welcome break from their daily routine of hospital visits, testing and treatment. The fund also supports a variety of Museum outreach programs for patients, including one-on-one and group encounters at the hospital.

The program began in 2005 with a generous gift from Ron and Dianne Farb, co-founders of the Climb for Cancer Foundation. More than 3,400 tickets have been distributed to cancer patients and their caregivers to enjoy the Butterfly Rainforest at no charge.

Donate to the Butterfly Connection and give a deserving individual the opportunity to experience the peace and tranquility of the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit and wonders of nature.
