The Need Is Real…

That’s how many children are diagnosed with cancer every year around the world. Help us send Jessie’s JoyJars to every one of them!

Worldwide, 400,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. And in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.

What are JoyJars?

JoyJars®, n. 1. 64oz plastic jars that are filled with hospital approved toys and tons of fun (nothing cheesy) 2. Symbol of everything Jessie stood for; hope, joy and love 3. A powerful boost that encourages children battling cancer and lets them know “WE CARE”.

Delivering Hope, Joy, and Love locally, nationally, and globally

Memory Canvases allow families the opportunity to select several words that best represent their courageous child.  These special canvases are for families living in the United States, that have had a child move to heaven from cancer under the age of 18.  Due to limited resources, for families living outside the United States we will make your customized Memory Canvas design and email it to you for your own printing.

It all started with Jessie’s bold wish at the very beginning — to encourage every kid actively fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up.

That’s still our mission today. Since 2014, we have had the honor of encouraging over 10,000 courageous families through ClubNEGU. Each ClubNEGU family receives a variety of boosts every month that are jam-packed with hope, joy, and love! These boosts of encouragement that are sent out are packed to bring love, encouragement, and support into your home. We hope our message is clear, we NEGU for you!

PLEASE NOTE:  ClubNEGU provides encouragement & support for families that have a child actively fighting cancer in the United States & Canada.  We truly wish we had the resources to help any child but our mission is to encourage kids fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up!
