Albany-- A moving event in Albany helped give people a better view of the reality of breast cancer. The project was the idea of one young Lee County student inspired by his teacher's battle against the disease.
12-year old Jonathan Jefferson and his 5th-grade-teacher Brenda Bradley got a view from the top of the 10,000 Cranes Creations of Hope monument at Phoebe.
Jefferson started the project when he found out Bradley was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Thousands of people donated money and created bright pink origami cranes to bring awareness to breast cancer. Jefferson just wanted to do what he could to help.
"When I started this project I was like really, really sad because Ms. Brenda Bradley, she was my favorite teacher out of all the teachers that I had and it was very dear to my heart," said Jefferson.
"Cranes wish cancer patients wellness and peace in the midst of their trials. Each one represents a prayer going up to God our father for wellness and for peace," said Bradley.
The monument is on display in the Medical Tower lobby at Phoebe.
