We did a conceptual art shoot with Emily Kopp. In the last 3 years, she has had a heart transplant, kidney transplant and now is diagnosed with cancer. She is having the tumor removed on dec 21 and will have radiation and possibly chemo after that. I have been trying to shoot with her for literally 3 years and every time we start to set something up, there is a setback so when she called me 3 weeks ago to say that she had cancer, I made about 20 calls to find a makeup artist (Lindsey Vonsur) and a hair stylist - who later canceled - and we finally did our shoot. My wife Sandra ended up doing Emily's hair.
we are very proud of Emily and her inner strength and beauty and know that she will not only survive this but thrive and become stronger. She is beautiful and an inspiration to my wife and I.
