Participant comments about why they chose to jump out of a "perfectly good plane"
The mission of Jumps for Hope, a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is to raise funding for research of cancer causes and cures, as well as funding for patient needs and care.
"My own personality got me on the plane. The cancer pushed me out. There's not much fear once you have that diagnosis. You feel really fortunate and say to yourself, why fear anything?"
"You think about the challenges that people with cancer have had, what they have done just to stay alive and be here with us. If they can do that, I can do something that's out of my comfort zone that I never thought I would or could."
"We all like to have thrills in life. We all like to have challenges. But sometimes we need a little push to get over that fear factor. In this case, I guess cancer has allowed me to get over that fear factor."
