Our name, Paper Cranes Healthcare, is as unique as our outlook on healthcare. Below is a short story of what inspired our culture and ultimately our name.
Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
The story of “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes” starts with a young girl, named Sadako, who becomes sick with Leukemia. During her treatment, she begins to construct 1000 paper cranes with the idea that the origami constructions will heal her and allow her spirit to live forever. Today, the construction of a thousand origami cranes represents a powerful gesture of caring, devotion, community, and love. It is often used to honor a celebration or to show support for someone in need. Sadako’s friends, family, and community helped her finish 1000 paper cranes, and her story continues to inspire community members to show support and love for each other. To Paper Cranes Healthcare, the act of making a thousand cranes is symbolic of our mission, as we promise to celebrate with and support you and your family. We pledge to provide love, caring, courage and strength to all our patients in the same manner the one thousand cranes helped Sadako.
