Send It inspires positivity, courage and gratitude in young adult cancer fighters through the gift of outdoor adventure and community.
In March 2012, Jamie Schou was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma. He endured countless hours of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, and there seemed no end in sight for his fight. Jamie passed away on July 12, 2014.
Through his 2-year battle, he fought with a smile on his face, and a deep conviction to truly LIVE each day with happiness and gratitude. For Jamie, ‘someday’ became ‘today’, and with every break in treatment, he skied, biked, paddled, summited Half Dome, and jumped out of airplanes – keeping him positive, happy and fighting hard.
In the last year of his life, Jamie founded the Send It Foundation, providing outdoor adventures for young adult cancer fighters, removing them from their cancer experience and creating the space to play, sweat and have fun outdoors. Send It brings the camaraderie built on the trail and the chairlift into the day-to-day cancer fight, reminding fighters to live for today and to Send It!
