That is such a wonderful get-well-soon wish. Better than a Hallmark card!

When I lived in Japan, I got to see the cranes that Sadako Sasaki folded while she was ill. Some of them are so tiny that she used a needle to crease the folds, and two or three of them could sit on a one yen coin (about the size of a dime).

When I was in 5th grade we learned how to make paper cranes and there was a story that we read in our textbooks that went along with it. It was about a young Japanese girl Sadako Sasaki who had radiation sickness, lingering effects of the bombs, and she was making cranes because once you make 1000 your supposed to get a wish granted. People began to help her make the cranes but she sadly passed before she could finish them. Her friends and family completed them after her death.

It's a common Asian belief that the completion of 1000 paper cranes will result in a wish granted by a crane, usually the gift is healing from a chronic or life threatening illness.
