Hey Gang!! Thanks to everyone who donated / offered to donate something to the #fuckoffcancerfundraiser last year!! It was so successful, we raised just under £2000! Whaaaat?
You guys are amazing!! 😍😍😍😍
I’m not sure how to approach it this time as I still have some open donations from the previous auction, it’s unlikely they’re all still available!
So if you offered something last year (thank you 💕), you may hear me knocking on your Instagram door, but for now if anyone wanted to auction their donation on their own page that would be pretty, pretty amazing! 💕😍💕

For anyone who isn’t aware of our story -
My husband is being treated for 2 brain tumours (Glioblastoma Multiforme stage 4) in Istanbul. Unfortunately in the UK the treatment available wasn’t working so this is why we’ve gone the private route.
The treatment in Istanbul costs €7000 every 2 weeks, on top of this we have scans, our resident visa, rent, flights, organic food, taxis to and from the clinic.
So on average it’s about £50,000 per three months. He is 2/3 the way through his first round and it’s already working! 🧠 ✨
He’s going to need at least one more three month session.
It’s a scary amount of money, but I’m visualising a long and happy life together so I believe we’ll get it some how!
If you can help in anyway, please get in touch!
Thank you for reading!
Love and Light, ✨
Jess and Dan xxx
I’ve been working on my #yearcompass (google it, it’s great 👍), looking back on what I achieved last year and even though it was the suckiest year to date 😑 I am really proud of not giving up on my dream of getting back into illustration and having a little Etsy shop. After years of being an arts educator/filmmaker it was a big leap to go it alone. Whilst there have been a few hurdles (or rather ⛰), I’m really glad I did as it has definitely kept me going whilst going through 2017: Return of the Tumour Bastard!
I’m so grateful for my Mum @tedawkward keeping Jessica Jumpers open for business whilst I am away!
Temple of Womb was my first idea and I was so excited when these got made. I had designed tees in the past but for friends bands. So “Temple of Womb!” is like my imaginary band! We’d be post-post-hardcore 😉
I’ve had a lot of requests for these tees in smaller sizes.
I can’t afford to stock more of them so next month I shall do a @merchthq campaign with these. 💕 I would really appreciate if you could share something from my page (or your own snaps) so we can get a bit more traffic to @jessicajumpers, as all sales go towards keeping us fed and watered in Istanbul!
Check out the shop to see whether your size is in stock.
I love this shot!! 📸 of @bat_grrrl by @miffpleasant
Yay! @merchthq have been printing up your jumpers and tees!
Please please PLEASE tag me in your photos when you get them as I won’t be getting mine until the end of January when I have my friends visiting!
We raised £200 which will go towards our #fuckoffcancerfundraiser
Get your Christmas orders in tonight and tomorrow morning before 10am UK time.
We’re here in Istanbul!! 😍😍😍😍 So sleepy and hungry but happy 😋 Treatment starts tomorrow !! #WildBeesRoadToWellness Thanks to everyone who has made this possible!! #fuckoffcancerfundraiser

Hurray!! Me and my best bud are going on a cancer fighting adventure to Istanbul!! One way ticket!! The clinic told us that he was accepted on Friday and we're going on SUNDAY!!! Waaaaaah!!!

Life is all about balance! ☯️
This week Dan has been to oxygen therapy, acupuncture and had two meetings; one with a homeopath and one with an oncologist in London! ☯️ We've been seeing a great homeopath for months now and her service has been invaluable. We visited Care Oncology Clinic in London for the first time yesterday and their work using repurposed drugs is very interesting and is having great results!
I think battling this horrible disease has really made us look at the world of cancer and realise that there isn't a one size fits all! What the NHS can offer you isn't all that's available and you need to explore every avenue! Although we are very lucky to have the NHS, don't get me wrong. 😍
Thank you all for your support and love!
Re: Auction! I need to update my phone to see whether my Instagram will work properly for this weekend. It has been quite a lot to handle, so I think it'll be just one day. 👍
Lots of love! 💗✌️
