What a wonderful program this is. Sometimes when your down and out, there is no medication or hopeful diagnosis that can alleviate your worries. Spirit Jump provides treatment for the heart and soul.

Spirit Jump understands the importance of the Mind-Body Connection. Lifting someone's spirits when they're emotionally stressed from fighting an illness is what Spirit Jump is all about. I know firsthand how much this helps. My father battled cancer last year. Our family put together a digital frame of photos and words of encouragement to play whenever Dad was feeling low. And now I'm sending cards to others who need encouragement while fighting cancer. We should all strive to show a little compassion and kindness to others. I believe Spirit Jump makes a vital difference in this regard.

Like many people, cancer has impacted my life. I lost my brother to brain cancer in 1999. So when I first learned of Spirit Jump, I thought, now there is an idea who's time has come. I know some of the folks who are involved in making Spirit Jump happen, so I know first hand how dedicated they are to making sure the goals of this charity are maintained. They are tireless workers and advocates for those touched by cancer. Spirit Jump is needed. Spirit Jump should be a part of everyone's life. I could not be more proud to be involved with such a great organization, and such great people!

This organization has grown a lot since I joined and I think they are doing a fantastic job with the changes they have made in the presentation, organization of information and in presenting the cause and ways to help. It offers the members of SJ a feeling of community involvement. The drawings they began offering gives something to the members as well.

This beautiful organization is positively influencing lives-- one jump at a time. Not only does it create an avenue of support for those who need their spirits lifted (which in my opinion can heal oftentimes more than medicine) but it further gives a wonderful feeling of connection and love from those who are reaching out in support of those healing from a health challenge. That is a high vibration win-win situation for all involved. As an author, speaker and expert in this field, I see first hand how connections of this sort provide a boost in the healing process. I am so happy to be a part of this group founded with the purest of intentions.

This wonderful organization gives in two ways. Not only does it lift the spirits of people who are ill, but it lifts the spirits of those of us who send the gifts & cards! I'm proud to be a Spirit Jumper.

After being diagnosed with cancer and while staying in the hospital I became very aware of which fellow patients were not receiving visitors or cards and flowers. The hospital is a dark place when you're sick. The healthcare system doesn't address the emotional toll that disease and treatment take on a person. Visitors and gifts and cards became important lifelines for me and I felt worried for those who seemed to be going through their treatment alone. I'm SO glad I found Spirit Jump. The program is allowing me to brighten someone's day(s) during their difficult time. It's a win win!!

I got involved with Spirit Jump because of my inspirational cousin Meaghan. I was dumbfounded when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her mom is super important to me since she is my Mom's little sister. Meaghan really impressed when after beating cancer, she went on a positive route and focused on what she could do for others. Meaghan even as a little girl was always full of life and inspiration. Its an honor to call her family. It truly is.

Spirit Jump is a great organization that does amazing work lifting the spirits of those with cancer. I work at a card store & it just seemed like the perfect way for me to give back by sending cards to people who needed their spirits lifted. So simple & so rewarding for both the jump-er & jump-ee!!!

I got involved in Spirit Jump because of its mission to give to cancer patients FROM THE HEART. When people are suffering from serious illness so oftentimes people just don't know what to say or do...they stumble, they blurt, they stay away, they avoid, or they cry and express their own fears to the patient. Spirit Jump offers an easy and tangible way to help patients feel loved and cared for during very dark times, when human connection is vitally important, and yet when it can be awkward or uncomfortable to make that connection happen. Spirit Jump makes it easy for two hearts and two spirits to connect at critical times for a person with serious illness. In this regard, Spirit Jump is so unique, offering gifts of the heart and spirit with profound simplicity.

I got involved with Spirit Jump because I have known Meaghan since she was a baby. How heartbreaking it was when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer less than 3 years ago! Her mom and I have known each other for a very long time. But, what has impressed me most is that, after battling and beating cancer, Meaghan put her energies into Spirit Jump. Rather than focus on her own ongoing struggles, she has reached out and done what she can to boost the spirits of others who are going through what she went through. She is truly inspirational.

I had been wanting to get involved with a charity in order to give back. And when my mom had to go in for a month's worth of chemotherapy earlier this year, I saw what some cancer patients have to go through. Therefore, when I became aware of Spirit Jump, I was very excited about joining. I thought I was doing it to help other people and lift their spirits but what Spirit Jump does goes beyond that. It's a full circle moment. When you send a card or a gift and you know that what you are doing is going to hopefully brighten someone's day who really, really could use the cheering up, that makes you feel so great! It's a spirit jump for the person receiving the gift and another spirit jump for the person doing the gifting. What a wonderful thing! Spirit Jump does incredible work and much needed work. Amazing.

This group is doing amazing work for people facing terrible circumstances. They're doing it all on a shoestring through a grapevine of information. They are truly a unique service!

This is an amazing organization that is about lifting up spirits of those not doing well. It is a group of people that just care, want to send a kind word,card, or gift if possible. I enjoy lifting other's spirits. The best thing is I do it out of my heart with no expectations! Spirit Jump's concept is very contagious and rewarding. They have my support!

This is an incredible non-profit lead by some incredible people. Being involved in this organization has really opened my eyes to the power that we all have within us to make a difference in someone's life. It doesn't require much effort at all and every card/gift/kind word is very much appreciated and cherished. I hope more people get involved in this organization and find it as rewarding to 'jump' people's spirits as I do.

I am so blessed that I have had the opportunity to get to know Spirit Jump. What a wonderful charity and organization this has become. Meaghan and Stacy are totally fabulous people with the biggest hearts. What started as a small thing has already grown so much because of their hardwork and dedication. I own a business that has helped and contributed to Spirit Jump, but have also been and continue to be a jumper myself. I have always wanted my children to grow up to be compassionate and giving people. My oldest is 3.5 years old and Spirit Jump has been a wonderful thing to introduce giving and also illness. We have jumped the spirits of children and my son has enjoyed drawing pictures and picking out surprises to give to our new friends. This is truly a wonderful organization and is a true miracle. So many families and people benefit from Spirit Jump everyday. Little things make such a difference in people's lives. I cannot even imagine the enormous amount of work that goes in to Spirit Jump. I hope to continue to be active in this organization for many years and look forward to all that is in the future. GO SPIRIT JUMP and THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!!
