Beschreibungen

Fourteen-year-old Jelly Poe was born in Karen State, located in the war-torn border region of Thailand and Burma. Jelly Poe would go to the United States as a refugee, seeking a new future with his family. Everything was going great! Jelly was excelling in English, he was progressing in school, and he was a star soccer player.

Jelly cared deeply for his fellow Karen people, and when he learned of an organization helping his people in the land he was born, he reached out to thank them. This began the friendship between Jelly and author Kevin LaChapelle. Jelly would encourage Kevin to continue to help his people.

A short time later, Jelly was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. This battle would ultimately claim Jellys life, yet Jelly chose to impact the world before he left with his mighty influence, kind heart, and legendary gentle smile. Jelly would urge Kevin to lead an effort to help his Karen people, who continue to be persecuted by the brutal and corrupt Burma Army. Kevin would commit to Jelly that he would never give up and would stand with the Karen people.

Before passing away, Jelly would teach those around him many lessons in life. His example of growing up had a major impact on his teachers, family, and friends. As you read this book, you will admire Jelly and hope your kids follow his example. Jelly will never be forgotten.
A compelling story about 14-year-old refugee Jelly Poe impacting thousands of lives while in a fight for his life battling cancer.
