Model Launches OnlyFans To Pay For Partner's Expensive Cancer Treatment

A woman set herself up on OnlyFans to help pull in some cash to pay for her partner's 'insanely expensive' cancer treatment.

Model and influencer Ona Artist put herself on the subscription only site to try and raise some money to cover the cost of her partner Dustin's chemotherapy - but she says despite earning $50,000 (£36,268) a month she still doesn't make enough.

Sadly, Dustin was told he has just a 50 percent survival rate after being diagnosed with lymphoma last year.

He immediately began chemotherapy and with their medical bills quickly mounting Ona launched her OnlyFans to try and help make ends meet.

But even though Ona is popular on the site, making $50,000, she says the couple still struggle to pay the bills, which have hit a staggering $500,000 (£362,472) so far.

Speaking to Jam Press, Ona said: "When Dustin was diagnosed, everything fell apart.

"Not only was I scared for his life but the chemo was so debilitating he couldn't work and I had to spend a lot of time taking care of him.

"I had a private site that I had designed and was hosting myself and I liked the freedom of that.

"With huge bills arriving in the mail and our income plummeting, I finally decided to do something I'd been putting off for some time, and I joined OnlyFans.

"Dustin loves my OnlyFans and has been my photographer for a while so he's fine with the body sharing - he sees it as art, as do I."

Alongside her OnlyFans, Ona is set to take part in a fundraiser called the Arizona Trail, which involves a 800-mile bike ride from Mexico to Utah, US, and covers mountains, deserts, forests, wilderness sites and canyons, including the Grand Canyon.

Ona hopes to boost her fundraising efforts by posting about her experiences online.

"What I'll be posting will be much more day-in-the-life than what I post now," Ona said.

"I love my fans and I hope they'll love getting to know me on a more genuine level.

"But I also hope they'll respond positively and generously to why I'm doing it - to save the life of the man I love who's made everything possible for me."

Ona is hoping to set off the Arizona Trail later this month, and reckons it will take a month to complete.

She added: "I was so relieved that OnlyFans turned out to be a wise financial move but cancer treatment is insanely expensive so we still can't make ends meet.

"I'd been thinking for a few months that I needed to do something drastic and that's when I came up with the idea of riding the Arizona Trail and posting along the way.

"I'm an avid biker, as was Dustin when he was healthy, and it's something we've both wanted to do for a while.

"But now I'm going to do it without him to try and make sure he's here one day to do it again with me."
