Jumping is Fun

Part way through my chemotherapy treatment my son Noble had his 4th birthday party in Brooklyn at Bounce U.  He was so excited to be jumping in plastic houses and sliding down big plastic slides with his friends. My husband and I got into the Spirit and joined them.  After a long day of jumping, laughing and playing I felt much better.

This led me to believe that hospitals should get together and sponsor a ‘Bounce U for Cancer Survivors Day.’  This could be a day to get away from all our responsibilities and the deadly seriousness of cancer so that we could just laugh and be in the moment.

Rediscovering your playfulness is so important with this disease.  We must remember to fill our day with joy and in my experience, no one can do this as naturally as kids.
