Diagnosed in the midst of a pandemic
Nicki Aycox had been diagnosed in January 2021. She had contracted Covid-19, and leukaemia was discovered during her treatment.
A year of sharing her day-to-day

Honest in her bio
What’s more, in her Instagram bio, she wrote next to “actress” that she was fighting leukaemia.
It wasn’t all leukaemia
Of course, not everything was leukaemia. The actress also shared her exercise routines, vegan dishes, and moments of leisure.

Joking in the hospital
In a nice but confronting video from the hospital, she said: “STOP! DO NOT attempt to sing 80’s music after taking high doses of chemo will cause memory loss.” As she explained, she “literally got not 1 lyric correct.”
Stem cell treatment
Many of her followers asked about the stem cell treatment that she was going to receive. She announced this new phase in the treatment at the beginning of 2022.
Loss of a talented actress
It is unknown how this treatment affected leukaemia, but in any case, it was unable to turn around its course indefinitely. In the end, a talented actress died from a destructive illness after a year and a half.
