Yes, you read correctly... a 10-year survivor! 

Take a literal leap of faith with Jon, a ten year survivor of multiple myeloma (a chronic blood cancer) as he reminisces on accepting life's challenges and recognizing its rewards while he and his daughter try out tandem skydiving in Ft. Dodge, Iowa. Jon's goal is to encourage survivors to connect their remaining abilities with activities that are both rewarding and fruitful. We need to avoid letting our diagnosis define us -- we can't let our brokenness absolve us from action or be a pardon from purpose. As a survivor, YOU may be freefalling EVERY day... find a way to tandem! There are thousands of local clubs and statewide associations that can help you and your family find peace and purpose. Let them HELP!
