Marian Newell's son Jesse was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma when he was 11 years old in 2001. This diagnosis led to a relapse which turned out to be Leukemia. Marian and her daughter Samantha will talk about their beloved son and brother who did as much living as possible until his passing in July of 2004.
With prior encouragement from Jesse, Marian started the Jesse's Wish Foundation which for over 15 years has helped many Pediatric Cancer Patients and their families. Samantha meanwhile is also heavily invested in this organization, as she is is the President of the Foundation.
