Jessie Joy Rees is the little girl who inspired so many others with her amazing spirit, even as she battled brain cancer. Now her legacy lives on through others, who continue to spread her message of joy, hope, and love.
Thousands gathered at Saddleback Church Wednesday night to remember a 12-year-old cancer patient who brought joy to others until she lost her battle with the disease last week.
Jessie Rees, whose wish was to spread joy and encourage kids battling cancer to “Never Ever Give Up” (NEGU), lost her own fight with the disease Thursday.
Twelve-year-old Jessie Rees is fighting cancer, but she is not thinking about herself. Instead she is spreading happiness and hope to other children with cancer through her JoyJars.
A loving couple, three beautiful kids and a faith as strong as any family can have — that, in words, describes the Rees family.
