Review- Never Ever Give up

Review of Never Ever Give up- if you do not have this book on your wish list, you need to add it..
I started reading and no way I could put it down, I felt like I was with the family as they went thru the testing and treatments that came with her cancer.
 It had me laughing, crying and made me think- no child should have to deal with cancer- they had such a big hearts though.

 Even though she was sick, she wanted to help the other kids. During the ten months she battled cancer, she and her family worked in the 'Joy Factory' (originally their garage) making JoyJar - packages filled with toys, games, and love for other kids with cancer. Jessie first handed them out personally at the hospital where she was being treated, but the effort blossomed quickly and there were soon thousands of JoyJars being distributed across the United States and to over fifteen countries.

Today, more than 100,000 kids have received JoyJars, and they continue shipping each week to kids in over 200 children's hospitals and 175 Ronald McDonald Houses. Jessie lost her battle with cancer in January 2012, but her message lives on in the Jessie Rees Foundation, which has become a beacon of hope for families fighting pediatric cancer.
