Never Ever Give Up by Erik Rees - A BookLook Review

I have just finished the book "Never Ever Give Up" by Erik Rees, and let me tell you, make sure you have a full box of kleenix when you start this one, because you'll need the whole box!  Not only was it a tear jerker, it was touching, and inspiring, and is one of those stories that will stay with you for a long time.

Young Jessie was diagnosed with a rare form on cancer at the tender age of 11, but she was the type of person that was more concerned with other people.  While going for treatment in the hospital, she saw a need to bring joy to the other children there, and started Joy Jars.

Joy Jars are just that, jars filled with and things that will bring a smile to a young child during a time of pain.  Jessie determined to give a jar to every child battling cancer, and she not only met that goal but surpassed it.

This story is told by her father, and takes you through all the ups and downs of this extraordinary little girls life.  And this is a story we all need to read, and share, and learn from.

If you would like to continue this ministry, here is the official website (The Jessies Rees Foundation) and the facebook page.

Needless to say...I highly recommend this book.
And remember....

Be blessed,
