I first met spirit jump through the story of a collegue (Stacy). Her life and the way that she wanted to lead it and the incredible journey that Spirit jump took is an inspiration to those who thik there is no hope for them. I am thankful each and every day that Meaghan and the spirit group are there to lift those who need help. God bless them. I wish them well and every success Mark M

I found out about SpiritJump when a dear friend was diagnosed with cancer. The outpouring of love and cards from jumpers is absolutely amazing. The founders give freely of their time and hearts. The jumpers (of which I'm one) have the flexibility to help where and when they see fit. It's as simple as sending out a card... to Jump the spirits of those cancer fighters.

I myself am a cancer survivor. Right before I was diagnosed I moved away from my family. I had my husband who was a great support but I sure needed to know others were out there and cared. Each day I sat in my bed barely able to breathe. I was pregnant too. It was so much to bear. Unfortunately I didn't have Spirit Jump at the time but I just know what gave me the most encouragement was the card or friendly gift from someone letting me know I was not forgotten. I was cared for and that is what Spirit Jump does! Just a couple of months ago my sister in law lost her own sister to Leukemia so I requested a Spirit Jump for her and let tell you she was ecstatic. It made her smile during a time when smiles are rare and that alone makes it all worth it!

My own spirit cannot help but jump when I think of this organization. The women who run this organization are just absolutely beautiful and their passion just shines! I love that the purpose of Spirit Jump is to not just give money but to also give love, hope, and hugs as a form of donation. You cannot help but to fall in love with all "Jumpers" and "Jumpees". I heart Sprirt Jump!

My cousin is currently in remission, with a bone marrow transplant scheduled in August, and I asked that she receive a spirit jump. Her and her mother were so happy to receive the cards and little packages from everyone involved. It really did so much to put a smile on my cousin's face, and to know that there were people out there who cared about her. I can't thank Spirit Jump enough for helping my family while they were down! There just aren't words enough to explain how great this organization is!

Attitude is so important when you are in the fight of your life. Many people go through it alone, or it feels that way, but the little pick-me-ups and knowing people out there care, which is what SpiritJump does so well, can make a huge difference. I only wish I had found them sooner.

Spirit Jump provides an uplifting message to everyone who is facing the terror of a cancer diagnosis. My son Danny was diagnosed 10 years ago with an inoperable brain tumor, and yet he is doing very well today, living independently and attending college. I love being able to share our message of hope with anyone who needs to hear that you can survive a cancer diagnosis -- and you can thrive.

My friend who has ovarian cancer was recently in the hospital with liver failure and was so encouraged by the flood of cards, mail and visits she received from spirit jump. It also an encouragement to me to see how uplifted she was each time she talked about it. Thank you spirit jumpers. God bless!

Spirit Jump is the most AMAZING orginization I have ever come across.What they do goes above and beyond many orginizations I have seen.They connect people in the most basic ways , in the most vulnerable times of their lives and it makes a lifetime of difference! Sending money to orginizations to help battle a disease or illness is GREAT,but connecting to the people who are battling the disease or illness personally and being able to be a part of getting them through it...is AWESOME! Best of all, it can be as simple as a card or a kind word that takes 3 seconds of your time to type into Twitter, that can make a difference in someones life! For a struggling mother of 5 , this orginization gave ME the chance to get involved and make a difference! Thank You Spirit Jump!

I came across Spirit Jump while randomly surfing through Twitter one day. As a breast cancer survivor myself and the wife of a prostate cancer survivor, I know firsthand the kind of fight people are in when diagnosed with cancer. Throughout my journey, the support, love and prayers of many meant the world to me. The simple premise of Spirit Jump allows me to give to others facing a difficult time in their lives. Spirit Jump gives me a chance to make someone feel like they are not alone, that there are people out there who care and will pray for their recovery. I'm proud to be a Jumper!

I have a friend who has Ovaraian Cancer, and after her liver failed, she turned to Spirit Jump and was welcomed with open arms. Meaghan reached out to her and met her right where she was; no questions asked. I really appreciate the support that this website and its contacts give to those suffering with cancer. Thank you for keeping "spirits jumping."

I happened across Spirit Jump somewhat randomly, but I was amazed by how a simple idea combined with some motivated and compassionate people could have so much impact on so many. The founders, the "jumpers" and the people whose spirits are lifted by thoughts, prayers, notes, gifts, flowers or just a simple tweet are a great example of the "social" in social networking. The contributions by Spirit Jump make our world smaller and make it a better place for everyone.

This organization allows you to make your contribution directly to the people who need you. And the impact of your support is effective immediately. What better way to help fight cancer than to make a gift to one of the brave warriors who fight the battle personally?

I am Meaghan's sister and this organization is everything she ever dreamed it would be. While my sister was battling cancer I saw the difference a little card or small gift would make. Meaghan's face would light up and you could literally see her spirits lifting. I think this is why she started Spirit Jump and I am so proud that she has been able to see it grow so much. Meaghan always said she got cancer for a reason and I can see that Spirit Jump has been it. I know she loves all the Jumpers and Jumpees as if they were her family!

Spirit Jump did the most important thing for my brother Mitch's recovery. They showed him that their are people across the world who genuinly care about other people. Mitch received many cards and letters of support which lifted his spirits to where he could soar just a little on his own. Thank you Spirit Jump.
