This auction came about because finally Jesse okay'd one of my idea's, this being my offer to build this T150V for her, so cause I said I would build it for her I have to, and are (with the help of Paul Scot from Apollo Air-conditioning, thanks Paul), and to make the job more of a challenge or just firkin difficult it is being built from bare frame to complete in the bar at Brewers Bar Mt Maunganui. So as you can see it's going to be Heart Children BOP that are going to be the receivers of the total paid for the bike at the auction.

Although Jesse lived with this debilitating problem she never let it stand in the way. As on her memorial card one of her quotes, "go over, go around go under or go through but never give up"

This suited her personality well, very determined, stubborn and wild at times.

Diagnosed at 18mths approx. with pulmonary hypertension and an aortic abnormality, prognosis poor. At that time there were 7 other young children with the same medical problem but Jesse's condition was worse than the others. yet she was the only one that ate solid food, only one to attend school and did so till the end of the 3rd form, then home schooled.

The words on the flier "born with nothing, die with everything" are the words Jesse choose for the tattoo on her back that she had done for her 16th birthday.

Even in death she never let her medical problem win, for she never died from this condition. Yet she out lived the other 7 by 10 plus years.
