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.

With thanks to a very talented Mother/Daughter team!

Experienced in the Japanese tradition of making cranes for family friends, Yuko and her mother teamed up to share their skill with Cranes for Cancer.  An aspiring nurse, Yuko believes in a “holistic approach of care and that cranes would have a powerful message, and would definitely make a positive difference” in the lives of patients and their families.   “We wish that these cranes bring much happiness, love, courage and hope to those fighting cancer and their loved ones as well."
