A few days after Jacqueline's 33rd birthday she was admitted to the Neurology Department at Mass General Hospital 🦋. She lost feeling in the lower half of her body. After multiple MRIs, lesions were found on her brain and spine. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Thankfully, with the support of her loved ones, holistic care, and treatment at MGH her symptoms are improving.
While in the hospital Jacqueline dreamt up a collection to help raise awareness for MS, to aid in research for a cure, and to give people hope. This collection is centered around butterflies and the color orange. Butterflies are a symbol of transformation, hope, positive change, and what the MRI of a brain looks like. Orange is the color for MS. She hopes these designs are as meaningful for you as they are to her. 20% of sales from this collection goes to Race to Erase MS 🦋. Race to Erase MS is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure of Multiple Sclerosis. https://www.erasems.org/
Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) in which the insulating protective covering surrounding the nerves called the myelin sheath is destroyed or damaged, resulting in interference with the brain’s signals to various parts of the body.
