We are kicking NEGU up a notch and going out to seek extra cool opportunities of encouragement and joy for kids with cancer. The Jessie Rees Foundation’s newly announced NEGU Adventures are “one of a kind” sports and entertainment adventures designed to give courageous kids with cancer an opportunity to put treatments aside for a while for a special experience and lots of fun with celebrities and professional athletes.

Jessie Rees American Idol



During Jessie’s fight with cancer, she was invited to attend a taping of American Idol. Escorted in a limousine, Jessie and her family visited the Idol contestants backstage and enjoyed the show while she cheered on her favorite contestants! Knowing how much this experience meant to Jessie during her own treatment, the Jessie Rees Foundation will continue to offer these exciting, memorable moments for kids fighting cancer.

Rock Star Ayden




This past week, courageous fighter Ayden, AKA Rock Star Ayden, experienced his dream NEGU Adventure as joined the cast and contestants at the taping of the Voice! Escorted in a limousine, receiving VIP treatment, backstage visits and even rockin the drums for the audience, Rock Star Ayden had his own “one of a kind” experience.  Here is what Ayden’s mom tells us about their NEGU Adventure to the Voice, “this experience was so uplifting for his heart and mind! To have that feeling of the crowd, the energy, and to do something you’ve dreamed of for so long…well, it’s a pivotal moment”.

We are so excited for our next NEGU Adventures with some amazing courageous kids. What is your dream adventure?
