Albany -- Thousands of pink origami cranes are in Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital's medical tower, and they stand for a good cause.

For every crane you see, a dollar was donated toward breast cancer awareness and research. Organizers from the Albany Museum of Art started construction today on the "A Thousand Cranes, Creations of Hope" monument in the lobby of the medical tower.

The museum has worked with the community to get each of these cranes folded for the past month and a half now.

Organizers are pleased to see the project finally coming together.

"It' feels really great. I'm really excited. We're all really excuted. It's going to be something else," said Nick Nelson.

The crane monument will be more than 30 feet long and 25 feet high. Unveiling of the crane project at Phoebe Putney is Tuesday.
