Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

Mission: The mission of Spirit Jump is to provide hope and comfort to the many men, women and children battling cancer, one gift at a time. Spirit Jump strives to let each and every cancer fighter know that they are not alone in their battle and that there are people behind them as they fight. Spirit Jump’s goal is to help cancer fighters fight strong by providing uplifting cards and inspirational gifts from our “Jumpers” to help fighters maintain the strength they need every day as they battle this terrible disease. The Amazing Part:. The amazing thing about Spirit Jump is that both the person giving a gift (Jumper) often has their spirit lifted just as much as the person receiving the gift (Jumpee).

Results: We have lifted the spirits of over 150 people battling cancer all over the world.

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.

@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.

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.

My grandaughter, Stacy , is the co-founder with Megan , of this wonderful program of SPRIT JUMP. Because they are both cancer victims, they know ,personly, what the support of family, friends and caring people mean. Watching them work so hard to make the program grow, shows the love and concern put into this project--so other cancer vitims know they are not alone in this battle . Therese Gabel

I found Spirit Jump via Twitter. Being a "jumper" with Spirit Jump has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had with a charity. I know who I am touching and I know their story so it is a much more personal experience than simply writing a check to a charity.

I don't really know what to say other than my dear friend Amy who is battling breast cancer and her sweet son, Philip who has survived 19 brain operations and is battling seizures and immense pain, have truly been lifted by Spirit Jump. I just wanted to put this out there on their behalf.
