i read about this organization in a cancer newsletter, a small ad. I decided that I would like to see if the mission behind the name was the same. So i wrote a small section about my family and our experiences with cancer. I was well received. The mail came for at least 3 weeks after that with such an outpouring of love in the way of cards, trinkets, you name it. And to my brother as well, who is in the battle. We both want to pass on this same affection and say thank you again and again.
Spirit Jump is such a worthy organization! Helping to boost the spirits of people fighting cancer, letting them know that other people care about them and what they are going through, can help those people better muster their own inner strengths to keep on going. This sincere, enthusiastic, and well organized non profit changes lives!
I haven't been too involved in Spirit Jump but my mom has, and somedays it's all she talks about. She loves sending cards to people who have cancer and other diseases. My sister died in May of 2008 and my mom is a Spirit Jumper in my sister's honor. I think Spirit Jump is a great thing.
This is such a great idea! It is so easy to take a few minutes and let someone in pain know you are thinking of them. thanks to Spirit jump for making it easier to pass our thoughts along and hopefully brightening someones day
@AmyB11569 has gone through an unbelievable amount of challenges with her oldest son as well as her own health. She has mentioned several times how much Spirit Jump has meant to her and I wanted to offer that feedback. Leslie Godwin
I met Meaghan & Bryan during a radio interview earlier this week. Their stories are inspirational. I immediately signed-up to become a Spirit Jumper.
Great nonprofit!!! These two women are trying their best to lift the spirits of as many cancer victims as they can. What a great idea!!!!
This group is run by two wonderful people who know of the battles cancer patients go thru and this group is all about giving. They enable us " Spirit Jumpers " to do what we can to give someone a lift, it may only be a card but it brings joy. We are kept up to date on how people are. I have been able to send cards to a number of families and also to the children. Living in Australia I can only afford to send cards but I know by the feedback provided that these are much appreciated. With the up to date information we get I can send cards to new people whilst still sending cards to my previous contacts. I can chose who I am able to help from the information given. Only small things but thankyou for starting such a positive group.
Spirit Jump helped my roommate, Jenny (@tattooed_lady) when she got sick. She has ovarian cancer, but her liver was failing.
My daughter, Jenny, has ovarian cancer and ended up in the hospital with liver failure a few weeks ago. The people at Spirit Jump rallied around her like nothing I have seen before. She treasures every card, item, and visit.
