Gold touch for can­cer

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Theatre -

ONE thou­sand gold coloured origami cranes have been folded and strung in the WA Mar­itime Mu­seum’s foyer in support of Go Gold Aus­tralia for Child­hood Can­cer Aware­ness month.

WA Mu­seum ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Dr Ian MacLeod said the cranes would re­main at the Fre­man­tle venue through­out Septem­ber.

“The cranes are, of course, a univer­sal sym­bol of longevity and were hand­made by par­ents of chil­dren with can­cer,” MacLeod said.

“This is such a wor­thy or­gan­i­sa­tion and we have made a do­na­tion box avail­able in the mu­seum foyer, which we hope vis­i­tors will support.

“All funds raised through this project will be do­nated to the Kids Can­cer Support Group, ded­i­cated to mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the qual­ity of life of chil­dren un­der­go­ing treat­ment for can­cer at Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal.”
