This charm was originally created as a pendant by Mike Maixner in 1984 as a birthday gift for his wife, dancer Danalee Maixner. He later recreated the "Pas de Trois" (dance for three) Butterfly Ballet pendant in response to his wife's death from ovarian cancer - as a tribute to her life and her love of dance, and to create awareness and funding in the battle against ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women. It strikes 1 in 69 women and causes more deaths than any other kind of female reproductive cancer.
