When Emma was going through treatments, we heard about something called a Joy Jar. All I knew at the time was that it was some type of charity that sent jars of goodies to kids fighting cancer. I signed Emma up, and without too much of a wait we received a jar full of fun toys and games for Emma.
Fast forward a few years. Sometime over the summer I was contacted to help promote a book during September--Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I said I would be happy to help promote the book, which was touted as "an inspiration that would motivate a person to do something when they read the story of the girl behind this movement of hope."
I received the book in the mail at the beginning of September, and I started reading. Low and behold, it was the story of Joy Jars! I started reading it that very night. I shed tears, but I also smiled. What an inspiration this little girl was!
I can't recommend it enough, and I hope you'll check out Never Ever Give Up: The Inspiring Story of Jessie and her Joy Jars.
