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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving cards randomly

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

i would make it a must to reach back

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

emails written by people who have benefited first hand from the support offered to them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to work hard to get ourselves known in the community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the enthusiasm AND organizational skills of the coordinators. Too often people have one or the other.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, responsible, with first hand experience.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to hospital social workers across the country, connecting patients with volunteers to provide support with cards and small gifts, such as reading materials, videos, knitting supplies, whatever may be appreciated.

Ways to make it better...

since I have to complete this sentence, I am now doing so.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

exposure and funds. People need to know about them in order to donate to them, and they need donations to provide little spirit boosting gifts to the people fighting cancer they wish to support.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I was once mistakenly diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, it's a lonely battle, and connections with others, and the greater community, really help.

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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

it makes my mom very happy to participate.

@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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the thanks sent to them from people they have helped.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

reach out to volunteers who can help them grow as the need is huge.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the sincerity displayed by Meaghan and Bryan

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

sincere, warm, committed

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

scale up to help an incredible number of people who need the help

Ways to make it better...

I had found out about Spirit Jumper sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

growing to meet the demand without losing the personal touch

One thing I'd also say is that...

I was very impressed in meeting Meaghan and Bryan in person.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the feedback from the group about how the " spirit Jump " helped someone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I am able to send cards to lots of people knowing they will enjoy receiving them and that they are from so far away.Australia

Spirit Jump helped my roommate, Jenny (@tattooed_lady) when she got sick. She has ovarian cancer, but her liver was failing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my roommate. They made her really happy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire the people who are already running it b/c they know what they are doing and most of the time I am a self confessing @$$hole.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing my best friend smile.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I didn't get to meet them, but they wrote some nice stuff.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably throw a kick @$$ party and still help a bunch of people with cancer.

Ways to make it better...

the cards and gifts weren't all over the place, but it makes Jenny happy.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money. Everybody needs more money, especially the people doing good stuff.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish I could have made Jenny smile like these people did.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way the support my daughter.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have only gotten to read some of their cards, and they are genuine, kind, loving people.
