UPDATED 2019: Over 250,000 JoyJars sent to kids fighting cancer in all 50 states and 40 countries!
The Jessie Rees Foundation was inspired by 12 year old Jessie Rees during her 10 month fight with two brain tumors (DIPG). During Jessie's courageous fight she choose to help other kids fighting cancer by sending them her fun-filled JoyJars and encouraging them to NEGU - Never Ever Give Up! Jessie personally was able to send over 3,000 of her JoyJars to other kids during her fight.
Although Jessie lost her fight with cancer on January 5, 2012 she left behind a massive wave of compassion and a legacy of love.
As of January 2019, the Jessie Rees Foundation has sent out over 250,000 JoyJars to children in all 50 states and 40 countries. The mission of the Jessie Rees Foundation is to ensure every child fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up!
