All of us at HairBoutique.com were saddened to hear that Jacqueline "Jackie" Donahue, a sister of Grammy-winning rapper Nelly, died Thursday at a St. Louis hospital after a long battle with leukemia.

Jackie, a 31-year-old mother of two, worked as Nelly's stylist until her illness forced her to leave that position.

In March 2003, Nelly & Jackie formed a campaign called "Jes Us 4 Jackie" to find donors for Donahue and others, and to raise awareness about bone marrow donations.  Nelly & Jackie worked together to educate and raise awareness about the disease and the need for African-Americans to join the National Donor Registry.

The 30-year-old rapper 's PR team reported that several dates on his tour had been postponed.
