‎"Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it." - Helen Keller
Adam Bender had his leg amputated at age one from a cancerous tumor, but that hasn't stopped him from inspiring millions with his ability to overcome. What an incredible video!

ANNAS LEGACY: Anna's Butterfly Cameo Butterfly W/ Peach Pearls 3 piece set (Handmade)  Search CLC009 @

BUTTERFLIES are the essence of rebirth. Anna and I, her mother, Cathy, often talked about what happens when we pass on. She and I agreed that it must be similar to the caterpillar and the butterfly. We thought that the butterfly also could symbolize rebirth on earth, such as surviving a possible fatal disease like Leukemia. We decided that either way the Butterfly was a beautiful symbol of rebirth.
THE PEARL, is an old valued symbol of life reborn from something not quite polished to perfection, but through the loving hands of God molded into something beautiful.
Designed By Cathy Lea Collar

This piece of Jewelry is my celebration of Anna's life and her rebirth.


Welcome to the Anna's Legacy blog!  We hope to share Anna's dreams and her loving memory through her desire to start a jewelry line.  Anna's mother Cathy along with her sisters, Jennifer and Brandy, Aunt Tina, and cousin Kinsey began Anna's Legacy in honor of her by making jewelry and donating the proceeds from sales to charities and "Joy and Laughter Gifts".  These gifts will be sent to people suffering from debilitating diseases in hope that they will brighten their day.  If you would like to help us with our mission please visit our online store at and our facebook page at Thank you for visiting our blog!
