What is the paper crane project?
A diagnosis of cancer certainly turns your life upside down. The journey is often long, difficult, and lonely — and it can be hard to maintain the energy needed to persevere.
The Paper Crane Project offers ways to show our support even when we don’t know how to help. The Paper Crane Project is a destination for sharing stories, inspiration, and ideas — creating community so no one feels alone. Because every challenge we confront together with optimism, support, and love serves to strengthen our will, confidence, and our ability to confront obstacles.
So let’s get started…
A heartwarming way to show someone you care
Legend tells us the creation of a paper crane can lead to the granting of wishes. There are three easy ways to make a wish.
After making your wish, take a photo of yourself holding your paper crane and share this photo on your favorite social networks with the hashtag #thepapercraneproject in the description so we can find it and share it too! Or, if you prefer, email your photo to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Learn from those who are fighting cancer and winning
