Recently, Ken Salazar (Colorado Senator) wrote a letter to President Bush requesting a meeting with the President & Sonia's parents in order that they can present him with all the letters that Sonia has collected.

In honor of Sonia's cause for peace, a group of Fort Collins' residents folded 1400 cranes Cranes For-Sonia and visited Hiroshima in Japan to place them in the memorial park built to commemorate Sadako, a peace activist who also succumbed to leukemia as a result of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima

Our Goal: To double the national cancer research budget by asking President Bush to put the war on hold for one month.




The Action Plan

  • Number One: Write a letter to President Bush asking him to put  the war in Iraq on hold for one month, so we can double the national cancer research budget.

  •  Number Two: Mail, Fax, or Scan and email your handwritten letters to me

  •  Number Three: Succeed in our goal of doubling the national cancer research budget for one year by asking President Bush to put the war on hold for one month.
