2nd time jumping with Start Skydive!

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: AnnissaG on 2018-07-08

Pros: Kyle was wonderful to accommodate my special medical needs!
Cons: There are no cons to this amazing experience

This is the 2nd time Iíve been fortunate enough to skydive at Start Skydiving. My first jump was in 2013 as part of a Fox 19 Breast Cancer Survivor skydive. It was an experience of a lifetime. This time I had purchased a skydive for my boyfriend for Fatherís Day and realized I could skydive for free because of my Stage 4 diagnosis. My oncologist said ďNoĒ but, I donít follow orders well and decided to jump anyhow. Kyle, was outstanding! I explained my condition and concerns and he went above and beyond to make sure I had a memorable and safe skydive! I am so thankful to Start Skydiving for offering this opportunity for terminal illness patients. What a blessing! I have zero regrets for not following doctors orders and making memories! Thank you to the girls in the office, Kyle, and everyone who took such wonderful care of me today! You made Yes his metastatic girls day! Much love
