Jillien is the oldest of five children and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma in August of 2016. After six months of chemo in North Dakota she received the news that her cancer was not responding to treatment. In February 2017, Jillien’s family made the difficult decision to move to Arizona for a new treatment protocol.
Jillien loved her beautiful long hair and doesn’t like when people look at her differently now that she’s bald. The photo shoot was a way for her to feel good about herself and more confident that she is beautiful inside and out!
