Kasey Altman: Diagnosed with Next-Level Badassery

Today I talk to Kasey Altman, an intrepid 25-year-old living with late-stage cancer. Before her diagnosis, Kasey landed her dream job working as an Account Executive for Google. She crisscrossed the country. She was an athlete with an active fitstagram. Then in October 2020, at age 24, Kasey was diagnosed with a rare cancer – stage IV pediatric soft tissue sarcoma, fusion positive alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Since then, Kasey started her own podcast, Reroute, about life’s unexpected detours. She launched a hackathon to help develop a cure for her type of cancer. And she’s now roadtripping across the U.S. enrolling in different clinical trials. She’s wise beyond her years and has an infectious laugh and lust for life.
