Girl Scout Troop 50292 of Kremmling made origami cranes at their meeting Sunday to donate to cancer patients.

There is a Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami cranes will grant a wish, such as a wish for long life or cure from an illness. These cranes will be sent to cranesforcancer.blogspot.com in the name of a relative of a girl in our troop, #TeamHozhoonii, also found on Facebook.

Hozhoonii is a 13-year-old girl with a rare for of leukemia, type ALL. This website collects 1,000 cranes and sends them to nominated cancer patients with a wish for a cure.

If anyone would like to make a paper crane to donate with the troop — directions on the cranes can be found on the Cranes for Cancer website — contact Katie DeBell at 970-724-1189 and she will send them out with their package.
