New England Revolution midfielder Kelyn Rowe is one of a growing number of NEGU AllStars sharing Jessie’s Never Ever Give Up message. A longtime supporter of the Jessie Rees Foundation, Kelyn and his “Kelyn’s NEGU Crew” aim to give Courageous Kids a memorable experience as they continue their brave fight against cancer.
The New England Revolution honored Ismaile Da Silva Jr., during the Revolution’s Kelyn’s NEGU Crew at Saturday’s game against Atlanta United FC as part of the team’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Night.
Nine-year-old Ismaile enjoyed a postgame walk around the field alongside NEGU All Star Kelyn Rowe as he thanked the fans! After being diagnosed with medulloblastoma in March of 2017, Ismaile has undergone surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy as part of his treatment plan.
“My goal for Kelyn’s NEGU Crew is to bring kids away from the hardships they have faced and make them smile,” Rowe said. “I want to share with them the same excitement the game brings to me. That is why I love taking kids around the field after the game to experience the fans. It gives them a chance to fully experience the joy and support the fans can give you.”
WE NEGU FOR YOU ISMAILE!!!
