Sadako's story (the true story)

Late November 1954
Sadako wa in the sixth grade. She caught a mild cold. She developed lumps on her neck tha were swollen like mumps by January the next year. The persistence of her symptoms led to a thorough examination in mid February. The report to her father was "Luekemia, a year to live at most. Immediate hospitalization recomended."

February 21, 1955
Sadako was admitted to the Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital, where she received transusions and other treatment.

Her white blood cells count shot up again.She was given the same medicine, but the treatment was terminated due to side effects.

August 3
Paper cranes were sent to Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital to cheer up the A-Bomb patients. When she saw the beautiful cranes, Sadako decided to fold her own. She had heard that folding a thousand paper cranes would make a wish come true, so she determined to fold that number herself. By the end of August, she had folded than a thousand cranes, each one invested with the wish to get well. Undaunted, Sadako continued to fold cranes.
