Love for All: 12-year-old girl who blogged cancer fight has died
Posted 1/7/12 , edited 1/7/12
Posting bad news isn't my thing, but this girl has made more impact on people than Crunchyroll as a whole has(No seriously).

She has a special(And I guess trade-marked) acronym called NEGU(Nee-Goo).

Short for, Never Ever Give Up.

Also, she and her parents started The NEGU Foundation, a nonprofit organization to raise awareness of pediatric cancer, support sufferers and raise money for research.

The foundation sold and provided thousands of "JoyJars" stuffed with candy and toys to sick children. More than 3,000 were sold and distributed in 27 states last year, according to the NEGU website.

After her diagnosis, Rancho Santa Margarita youngster received tickets to "American Idol" and arrived with signs that read "NEGU Casey" to support contestant Casey Abrams, the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/yJwyF3) reported.

Co-host Ryan Seacrest also allowed her to announce country singer, and eventual winner, Scott McCreery.

Jessica wrote on Facebook that her mission was "to encourage kids fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up by spreading hope, joy and love. A cheerful heart is great medicine."

A celebration service was scheduled for Wednesday at the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, where her father, Erik Rees, is a pastor.


From the Article, this is a special case, my heart goes out to this girl's family, who isn't little in my eyes, but exceptionally calm to be staring death in the face as a 12 Year old.

She is going on my Aero and Co Offices record, I wanna help them spread awareness and help with research.

Just thought you guys might like this.

Later guys, I'm going to my office now, goodbye.

Your office is your room, lol.

Don't know how this is bad news, anyway. It all seems positive to me, and the girl didn't seem to have a terrible death.

Hey its you again.

You know, here on Earth - death is usually regarded as a negative thing. Death is especially negative, when the person who has died, died very early in their life - and didn't really get the chance to experience it beyond the point of preadolescence. When you throw Cancer into the mix, well, the situation is just so.. double-un-good... how exactly do you not understand that? O_o

When someone has cancer, don't they suffer? Maybe she didn't get to live a full life, but at least she isn't suffering. Plus, her idea has become some sort of charity which helps kids who are also suffering. How exactly do you not understand that?

People who think that death is better than suffering, are the type of people who condone suicide.

I condone assisted suicide. For example, when someone is terminally ill, has to have 24/7 support and just wants to die.

It's always a shame to see a person die at such a young age.
Rest in peace, young lady.

I condone suicide.
I don't think we should take the right from people to decide what to do with their lives.
But when people do end their lives, they'd better not do it while hurting others (i.e.: don't jump in front of trains or cause a massacre after which you kill yourself).
Please do not describe people who condone suicide as bad, it's just an opinion you should keep to yourself.

RIP. It's so depressing how some people are just destined to be worse off than others. Really makes you stop and put your problems into perspective...

I mis quoted this. This is a reply to MININGAST.

MINGINGAST SAID:

<END THING THAT MININGAST SAID>

You aren't one to take your own advice, I guess. That's fine, your feelings are your feelings, and you are entitled to them, yadda yadda so forth and so on - but the topic of suicide isn't like the arguments about abortion. Suicide is selfish. Anyone who feels they HAVE to kill themselves, should be able to do so, on their own, without assistance. I don't think it is right - but, whatever.

Needing ASSISTANCE to commit SUICIDE, is a unique flavor of FAILURE that I will never have to taste. If I am ever in a state of SUFFERING that is SO INTENSE that SUICIDE is something that OCCURS to me, then you had better be damned sure that ILL BE DOING IT MYSELF, and if I am incapable, well then - it just isn't in the cards.
