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.

Deanine's Cranes, Part 2
Deanine's Cranes were shipped today and will be delivered tomorrow. Aunt Carol did an amazing job of folding cranes and organizing the effort, assisted by Cousin Scott. They came out so beautiful! Check out the pics! I love the basket and the interesting colors and textures of the paper.
The cranes will arrive just as Deanine is starting her treatment. Deanine, we hope these cranes bring you good luck and health and happiness. Every time you look at them, remember that we are all thinking about you and wishing you well.
