💵 Salary :

Kaylin Marie Andres was a writer, artist, and fashion designer.[1]

When Andres was 23, she was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma.[2] She was in her senior year at the California College of the Arts where she was studying fashion.[3]

While she was in treatment, she wrote about her experience in a blog called Cancer Is Not Funny.[2] For Andres, writing about what she was going through and using humor helped her cope with the experience.[3] Her experiences as a young adult with cancer were chronicled in season two of the MTV series, World of Jenks,[4] and in the comic book, Terminally Illin, published by Last Gasp.[3]

Andres also exhibited art at the Jenn Singer Gallery in New York City that related to her fight with cancer.[5] "Chemosynthesis" (2014) dealt with the grief of losing her health and accepting her cancer.[5] "Viaticum" (2016) is also about dealing with acceptance.[5] The works in "Viaticum" are self-portrait photographs printed on silk.[6]

Andres died on November 21, 2016 after an eight year battle with cancer.[7] Andres is buried in Sacramento.[3]
