Woman dealing with cancer has Paris photo shoot

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman with incurable stage four breast cancer had the trip and photo shoot of a lifetime.

Photos of Jill Brzezinski-Conley were taken by a photographer in Paris, France. The 35-year-old was invited to do the shoot after a friend sent pictures of her to the photographer.

"I felt like Cinderella," she said. "I didn't feel like a cancer patient. They made me feel like a supermodel."

In 2009, Brzezinski-Conley found out she had breast cancer.  After 16 bouts of chemo, 31 rounds of radiation, and a double mastectomy, she finally entered remission.  But last year, the cancer returned and spread to her bones.

The photos were done to help empower other breast cancer patients and educate the world about the disease.
