Cancer patient model touched the network with her photo shoot
The 17-year-old beauty photo session, a cancer patient who had dreamed of a modeling career since 13 years, touched netizens.
Andrea Salazar from Texas planned to finish school and become a model. However, the plans collapsed after a visit to the doctor, who found a "lump" on the girl's neck. The diagnosis is Hodgkin lymphoma. Andrea dropped out of school and started treatment.
The girl's mother decided to cheer up her daughter and suggested not to wait for the end of the course of treatment, but to start a modeling career now. She sent letters to photographers asking them to arrange a free photo session for their daughter. Dozens of caring people responded to her calls.
After a course of chemotherapy, Andrea lost all her hair. Initially, the girl starred in wigs, but then decided that she wanted to show herself real.
Photographer Gerardo Garmendia agreed to make a fairy-tale photo session for the girl. Photos Andrea posted on her twitter with the caption "Cancer will not prevent me from feeling like a princess!".
Pictures of lightning spread through the networks, and the heroine was surprised at such popularity. Andrea says that with her post she wanted to support all the girls and women who are faced with cancer and are trying to accept changes in themselves.
