NEGU- Never Ever Give Up has become an inspirational cancer message and quote of encouragement for thousands of children fighting cancer around the world. 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?
When 12-year-old Jessie Rees fought two inoperable brain tumors for 10 months, she used her message, NEGU: NEVER EVER GIVE UP, as her daily encouragement to stay strong, stay positive and to keep fighting. Through the delivery of her JoyJars to other children fighting cancer around the world, Jessie’s NEGU message has become a global inspirational message of encouragement to over 200,000 children fighting cancer. Jessie earned her wings in January 2012. Since then her family, her foundation and her 210,000 Facebook fans are dedicated to continuing to spread Jessie’s NEGU message to every child fighting cancer around the world.
Jessie’s JoyJars are stuffed full of fun, age-appropriate toys and delivered to kids fighting cancer in the hospital and delivered to their homes when they sign up for ClubNEGU!
Once signed up for ClubNEGU, kids fighting cancer and their family members receive fun doses of hope, joy, and love. These special “doses” are our gift to each qualifying courageous family that registers. We truly hope all of this support helps each family feel loved, encouraged and supported as they fight cancer.
Jessie had some rules for stuffing the perfect JoyJar…
1. NO cheesy toys!
2. Jars need to be filled to the rim with toys–little to no air.
3. Toys should be hospital approved and age appropriate.
4. JoyJars should include one of Jessie’s NEGU bracelets–encouragement to Never Ever Give Up!!!
