Skirts With A Cause

 

Hi, my name is Jacquelyn Davis. 


I'm an author, podcaster, singer, daughter, and friend.

Welcome to Skirts With a Cause!

I’ve started a Fundrazr making skirts in exchange for donations to save my quality of life. I’m a 26-year-old woman from Birmingham, Alabama and I have been diagnosed with a severe disease called Paraneoplastic (pre-cancerous) Limbic (affecting the nervous system) encephalitis (meaning swelling in the brain).  On the outside, I believe God has preserved my body to look relatively healthy and functional like a shell, but on the inside, my body is at war.
 
 I believe I am bigger than my body and my soul can impact others changing the world. But first, I need your help.

Your money will be going towards living and medical expenses. I do not have good insurance or adequate income, but I am willing to do what I can do to help supplement in my rough situation.

 

 

 


Sewing is a great passion of mine, which I use as a distraction during episodes of pain.

Sometimes I sew to shake off jitters between cancer medications and doctors’ appointments. Mostly though, I sew because I enjoy it.

 

 


A day for me is like a rollercoaster full of tough moments and cognitive challenges. I can have intense spasms, trouble speaking, but other times I can be more eloquent like in my video. Having Limbic Encephalitis is similar to having half a brain. My head hurts, and my body freaks out constantly. Sometimes I feel like a blender, sometimes a little better, but never like myself. As bleak as it seems, God has blessed my hands and I intend to use them. 

I want to create skirts, dresses, and some smaller goodies in return for anyone who donates $2 or more.

Without your help, I will continue to suffer physically.

 

 

A- line skirt for a donor! I believe I am bigger than my body and my soul can impact others changing the world. But first, I need your help.

Your money will be going towards living and medical expenses. I do not have good insurance or adequate income, but I am willing to do what I can do to help supplement in my rough situation.

 

In exchange for your kindness, I would like to make you a skirt or other goodies from the list.

There is always hope in dark circumstances. I am so grateful to anyone even considering to give. I ask if you are not able to donate, please share.

Skirts and dresses almost seem to have a magical effect on the wearer. We can feel beautiful. In my illness, I’ve felt the most beautiful in dresses and skirts. I’ve had some of the best memories in dresses, and I hope others can feel special as well.

 

Who will be sewing your new clothing items?

 

ME.

 

I’ve been sewing for three years. Though I am ill, I am so excited for you to call these pieces your own.

Encephalitis may affect my body, but I believe in my spirit that I was made to live a full and abundant life. Please help make my dreams of a healthier life come true.  Thank you so much for even reading this post and considering donating to this special cause.
