Psst. Hey buddy. Want to buy a butterfly?

The Community Cancer Center is raising money by having people buy monarch butterflies and release them into the gardens at the center in Bloomington in honor or remembrance of loved ones.

GLT's Charlie Schlenker talks with three cancer center volunteers about the meaning of the event and the healing and butterfly gardens at the center...Peggy Swerdlik, Sue Farrell Stroyan, and Chris Kraft.

Peggy Swerdlik has been a volunteer at the Community Cancer Center since it opened. There is a new butterfly garden at the center, though Swerdlik says the idea is not new there.
