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.

Mr. Gordon's Cranes
Mr. Gordon's cranes are finished! Thanks to David's mom Jill for making so many, as well as his Uncle Larry, Aunt Carol, and sister Dena. Thanks to Emiko who is always sending baggies of cranes. Thanks to David for counting and buying a bigger vase when the one I bought was too small.
Mr. Gordon loved his cranes, and we wish him well.
