I joined Spirit Jump as a one year survivor of Breast Cancer. I know firsthand how much it means to know that someone is thinking of you, and cheering you on. I also know that not everyone has the support system that I was blessed with. I saw Spirit Jump as a wonderful way to give back.
My 10 year old daughter and I have made this an activity we share together. I hadn't expected that we would get as much, if not more out of joining Spirit Jump as the recipients, but we both definitely have. We read the updates together, decide what to send, package up our little gifts together. Janey enjoys addressing the packages, and feels the more stickers and decorations the better, so our gifts arrive wrapped in art. I am so proud of my little girl and the love she puts into Spirit Jump. I know the recipients feel it, and what a wonderful gift for US to be able to lift the spirits of patients and families who are in the same shoes we were in a year ago.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the thank you note I received from the family of little Grace who received some coloring books from us. Her parents were sincerely grateful for the support, and the best part was knowing the joy it brought to Grace to receive the gift.
