Collect 1000 members to grant William a wish.

There is an old Japanese legend which says that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish.

This cause is based on the story of Sadako Sasaki. Sadako was two years old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. In 1955, at age 11, Sadako was diagnosed with Leukemia, "the atom bomb" disease. Sadako hoped that the gods would grant her a wish to get well. She started to work on the paper cranes and completed over 1000 before dying on October 25, 1955 at the age of twelve. She never gave up. She continued to make paper cranes until she died.

William Murray is my son. He is only five weeks old and is very sick at the moment. He is fighting and not giving up. We want to collect 1000 Facebook members in the hope that your positive energy will act like a paper crane and grant him one wish...to get well.
