Jessie Rees Foundation Fundraisers

January 01, 2015

OUR INSPIRATION…

Jessie Rees was a beautiful, athletic, smart and compassionate 12 year old girl who bravely fought two brain tumors (DIPG) for ten months and two days. Her fight started on March 3, 2011 and ended on January 5, 2012 when she earned her angel wings.

During her courageous fight, Jessie decided to focus on helping other kids fighting cancer that couldn’t leave the hospital. This desire led to the creation of her fun-filled JoyJars® and Never Ever Give Up (aka: NEGU®) message.

Today, JoyJars and NEGU are recognized symbols of hope, joy and love in over 29 countries.
 

OUR MISSION… 

Help every kid fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up! 

We fulfill our mission by CONNECTING with families, bringing AWARENESS to their stories, offering them a network of helpful RESOURCES and sending the entire family continual doses of ENCOURAGEMENT throughout their journey.


OUR MESSAGE… 

NEGU was Jessie’s motto and message that she shared with as many people as possible during her courageous fight.  NEGU stands for Never Ever Give Up and has become an international symbol of hope to both young and old. We NEGU…Do you?
