There is an old Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami paper cranes will bring good luck. Cranes for Cancer's mission is to provide baskets or vases of 1,000 cranes to cancer patients. The 1000 cranes bring hope and uplift spirits. We've been doing this for about 18 years, but we NEED HELP! You can help by: 1) Donating money for supplies 2) Donating origami paper 3) FOLDING CRANES.
If you know of a person who is in need of 1,000 origami paper cranes, please send an e-mail and we will send your dear friend or family member 1,000 paper cranes of hope and healing.

For the past five years, the Kearney Public Library in Kearney, Nebraska has folded cranes as part of their summer reading program, and Cranes for Cancer has been the beneficiary of this good work. This year we received two huge boxes containing 1,990 cranes, along with a note and photo of a basket of 1,000 cranes they made and distributed to a local participant’s family member. So inspiring! Thank you to all, and especially to “super” librarian, Rita, who has spearheaded this effort for all five years! We are ever grateful for your support --“to lift the spirits of cancer patients.”
