  12. Margaret Gratton says:

    Hello Jessica,

    Your grandfather is one of my friends, We used to work together at Orange Coast College.
    You and my grandson, Aidan, were born the same year. Your grandfather and I talked with each other about how happy our little grandchildren made us feel! So–be brave, Jessica. You have so many people cheering for you and praying for you. Never forget that your middle name is “JOY.”

  13. Hey Girl~
    I don’t know you but your dad trained me in a S.H.A.P.E. class. You are in my prayers. I get sad when I see people your age dealing with cancer but I know God has a plan for your life. I agree with that Facebook post – Never give up, EVER! God will carry you through. Praying for you…

  14. Hey Jessie~
    you are in my prayers. feel better soon. god will be there for you. dont ever give up!

  15. Jessie,
    I dont know you but I am a coach in Virginia and I saw a link to your site on Coach Bryans blog. Remember that all things are possible with God and he has a plan for you. Take strength in knowing that the He knows your name and that you are one of his children. If times gets tough you need but call out to Him and He will answer you. He is always there for you. Maybe one day our team will take a training trip and we can meet. NEGU!!! Andy Baciocco

  16. Michela D. says:

    Hey Jessie!

  17. Hi Jessica,

  18. mindy butelo says:

  19. susan clark says:

    Hello Jessica,

    We have not met. I know your Grampa from O.C.C. and the gym. You have so much love and support around you. I am sending you prayers and beautiful healing thoughts.

    p.s. My grandson spent some time at C.H.O.C. They are wonderful. You are in really good hands.

  20. chuck wright says:

    Jessie–you mostly likely don’t know me but, I have known your Grandpa for many years. I see him when I look at your photo. I know you have one of the best loving support groups anyone can ask for. In my own way, I will pray for you to beat this–and you will. If you have an ounce of your Grandpa’s will to survive, you will beat this. As you know, your Grandpa is a United States Marine. Marines have a tenacious fight, a survival skill, unequal to anyone. You have that fight and that skill too. As one Marine says to another Marine—SEMPER FI.

  21. Frances Trane says:

    Hi Rees Family,

    I will be praying for each of you this day and many days to come. I will pray with faith for God’s incredible overwhelming grace to cover each of you. I love your “gift of fight” that you have regarding your incredible challenge. I heard of you through Brenda Lana (isn’t she the best) and I am so thankful she shared your story with me. May God’s strength be with you all today and again, I will be praying.

  22. Dear Jessie,
    I have been reading all about you and I hope and pray for you recovery. You are a brave and beautiful young lady. In our family we have been in a fight just like yours, it is tough… you have a wonderful attitude and so much strength! I admire you.

  36. Jessie, I am a 42 year old, full grown man, with a daughter of mine own. I am going through a very tough time trying to support my family. But I came across your story and your strength and fortitude have been an inspiration to me. This night, my wife and I will pour out our prayers for you, your family and also for your own intentions. We will say a Rosary for you. We know that God is with you already – right there at your side – and there He will stay! Thank you for being an example of how God wants us to LIVE our lives. Your story has helped touch me. You are just showing us what life is all about. May God bless you and your family – you are all SURROUNDED by His love! Thank you.

  42. You are such a great inspiration to me. Your story is both touching and encouraging. God will surely heal you 100%. I am praying for you and I know all shall be well. For no weapon fashioned against you has the power to prosper – so the weapons of sickness are defeated by the power of the stripes.

    God is for you, who can be against you. Stay in the faith,

    God bless,

  45. Roselyn Waiba of Papua New Guinea, Pacific Islands says:

    Hi Jessie,
    I have seen above wonderful and encouragements and powerful prayers. Yes I agree with all the saints standing on the Word Mt. 18:18-20 and pray and command that tumor to come out in Jesus Name. That tumor be removed from your brain ( it’s a foreign item, not suppose to be there, it’s not it’s place ) I bind it with the Name of Jesus and send it back to the pit of hell in Jesus’ Name.

    Your brain will be just normal as how the father in heaven created and formed you Jessie in your mum’s womb. I speak joy, peace, righteousness, and the love of God to fill you for the glory of the living God. Through this situation, may our Living God be glorified and let his kingdom be extended by souls being saved from the kingdom of darkness to come to the kingdom of righteousness.

    I love and continuing to pray for you as we are one in the blood of Jesus. Eventhough I am in the pacific oceans and you are in Amercia but you are my daughter in Jesus Name. You are healed in Jesus Name. Receive your healing and glorify the Lord for what he has done.

    Please let me know what God has done for you so we will all give praise and honor to our father in heaven. Amen.

    Roselyn Waiba
    Papua New Guinea.

  48. Theodora says:

    Hi Jessica. I saw the link to your site from the daily devotional which your dad wrote on the Purpose Driven Life. In Psalms 103 it says that God heals all our diseases, yours included and by the stripes of Jesus you are healed! (Is. 53). I was very happy to read that in May the tumour had reduced! This illness is for the glory of God, that people may see His healing and restoration powers. I believe that God is healing you and making you whole right now in Jesus’ name! Theodora (Zimbabwe)

  49. Ayo, Soji,Naomi &Josiah says:

  51. Alice koh says:

    Dear Jessica,
    Do not be afraid God is with you all the time,He who love you always no matter what your circumstances is He always with you,trust Him O Mighty God.
    Look at Psalm 121
    I lift up my to the hill
    Where does my help come from?
    My help come from the LORD,the maker heaven and earth.
    He will not let your foot slip
    He who watches over me will not slumber
    Indeed,he who watches over Israel
    Will neither slumber nor slip
    The Lord watches over you
    The Lord is your shade on your right hand
    The sun will not harm you by day
    Nor the moon by night
    The Lord will keep you from all harm
    He will watch over your life
    The Lord will watch over your coming and going
    Now and forevermore.

  52. Chris Rees says:

    The Rees family in SW Missouri is praying for you. We have been through similar experiences at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. God is Good, and will hold you in his hands.

  53. Jordyn Carrido says:

    Praying always Jessie. I swear every time I read your posts and think of you I start crying. Noone should have to go through what your going through, let alone a twelve year old girl. It must be so hard for you and your family to deal with this. And I know it must be of small comfort but I still would like you to know that I am praying for you everyday and am always hoping to read the words “HEALED” on a post. :’) that alone would make me burst out in tears and dance and sing for you and I think it would do the same for the rest of team NEGU as well. Always praying for your recovery and looking forward to reading your post saying “God has healed me!!!!!!” love you Jessie. God bless you. ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  54. Jena Anderson says:

    Me and my daughter age 13 who also has brain cancer newly diagnosed in Jan 2011 will be rooting for you aswell…..HE IS……

  55. Hey, Jessie,

    We’ve heard about you all the way up here north of 49 in Toronto, Canada, and want you to know that you’re in our thoughts and in our prayers. Keep fighting the good fight.


  56. Nikki LeFebre says:

    You are such an inspiration. I pray for you every day!

  57. Jordyn Carrido says:

    Jessie you are an angel and my only regret is that i didnt know you better before you stopped coming to school. Love to the Rees Family. NEGU!

  58. Mackinsey Goldman says:

    Jessie I know you are in heaven right now. I would post on facebook but I don’t have one. You are such an amazing inspiration to all who have visited your page. You were an amazing friend, one of my best friends, and I will miss you dearly. You will be missed by thousands of people all over the globe. I love you so much, and know that you are resting in peace with God. You truly are an angel now, and you very well earned your wings. NEGU NEGU NEGU
