Taylor Swift Fans Fold 1,989 Cranes For Singer's Mom In Light Of Cancer Diagnosis

Taylor Swift's been known to give back to her devoted followers. But this time, two of her fans turned the tables and did something sweet for the superstar and her mother.

Inspired by the Japanese legend which says that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes is granted a wish, sisters Sam Brady, 11, and Jo Brady, 8, of Salt Lake City, folded 1,989 paper cranes -- a reference to Swift's latest album, "1989." The two wished that Andrea Swift, the artist's mother who is battling cancer, would get better, according to a video featuring the pair's project.

Along with their mother's help, the two hope to get the origami creations to Taylor and Andrea.

“It never ceases to amaze me how innocent and hopeful children can be,” Laurie Brady, the pair's mother, told ABC News. “We’re doing everything we can to get them to Taylor and her mom.”

Sam and Jo spent four months on their paper artwork project, according to the video. The thoughtful pair originally planned to fold the cranes and wish for concert tickets, but they ended up having a change of heart.

"When we found out your mom was diagnosed with cancer, we thought that we should probably wish for her to get better and kick cancer's butt," Sam said in the video.

While most of the work is finished, the two have called on classmates and friends to watch their video about their project as well as help them find a way to get the cranes to the singer. Brady is hoping people can tweet at the star about her daughters' kind act, according to ABC.

And though getting the singer's attention may sound like a long shot, Brady told ABC, you never know.

"If you’re going to dream, dream big," she said.
