Jessie Rees was a beautiful, athletic, smart and compassionate 12 year old girl who bravely fought two brain tumors (DIPG) for ten months and two days. Her fight started on March 3, 2011 and ended on January 5, 2012 when she earned her angel wings. During her courageous fight, Jessie decided to focus on helping other kids fighting cancer that couldn’t leave the hospital. This desire led to the creation of her fun-filled JoyJars® and Never Ever Give Up message.Today, JoyJars and NEGU are recognized symbols of hope, joy and love in over 27 countries. Jessie created her fun-filled JoyJars® as a way to send hope and joy to her peers fighting cancer. Jessie knew that fighting cancer made you feel lonely and limited. She also knew “love” stuffed in a jar was a great remedy. Jessie personally sent over 3,000 JoyJars to kids during her fight. Over 80,000 JoyJars have been stuffed and sent to courageous kids worldwide.
Capturing Couture is so excited to be a part of the 2015 NEGU Gala through donating one of our new Turq Organza Dog Collar and Leash for "Sweet Pea", the NEGU puppy that will be auctioned off at the Gala. This ADORABLE black lab puppy was named Sweet Pea because that was Jessie Rees's nickname.
