Hey yall! I'm Nichole aka "Miss Nikki Lynn." I'm from Minnesota and was doing free lance modeling for 3 years before being diagnosed with brain cancer in the summer of 2009. I'm currently doing chemotherapy and lost my dayjob and my house, but I haven't lost my dreams.
I finally had my first shoot since my surgery in January 2010 and although I know I've gained some weight I feel confident that I can still continue modeling. Moreso than that I have feel inspired to apply my background and experience to help those who are suffering through physically altering conditions and remember that they can still be beautiful and help others suffering as well. I'm working on trademarking the idea and will be seeking help for models and photographers to help with the concept, as well as development and funding.
Certainly if anyone wants to know more, let me know. Also if anyone is interested in working with me and willing to do paid shoots I'd be very much interested as my illness has prevented my from being able to sustain the dayjob and kind of work I did prior to my diagnosis, but I feel my creativity is still able to be nourished and can thrive despite my circumstances.
Much love, Miss Nikki Lynn
I had my second brain surgery on 2/16/2011 and will be doing another year of chemotherapy although daily this time. I will also be doing radiation which will likely result in the loss of hair on the right side of my head. This may interfere with some projects, although if anyone is willing to work with me despite this inconvenience or certainly to follow the journey let me know.
Update June 5th, 2011
My cancer appears to have advanced yet again. I am now upgraded to a GBM status. I am taking a break for a bit for modeling or at least in particular for nudes. I may still be intersted in creative adventures, but hopefully with compensation given the financial strain of brain cancer and my inability to travel or go up and down stairs at the moment and would need someone to come to my home and photograph if interested.
Please find me on facebook or caringbridge as all networking and assistance would be greatly appreciated and I have been photographically following my journey since 2009 and have a couple picture books I've been working on and may be interested in publishing based on my prior work. www.facebook.com/nkedrowski
it does require a site password I believe but I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Thank you for your continued support and I hope to help bring in art and imagery the experience I am going through as it follows me in time from when I started modeling and through the physical changes I've experienced the last 2 years while battling brain cancer.
