Survivor, Thyroid Cancer
Kasey Bass is a thyroid cancer survivor (at age 20) and a single mom of 5 kids. She’s an English professor and a published writer who writes about literature, art, and technology, and she’s a ceramics artist, a model, and an athlete–a NASM certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, rock climber, boxer, and skydiver. She believes in living life to the fullest and living with joy–she sees every day as a party she gets to throw, even if it’s just for herself.
When I was 20, I was playing the role of Nerissa in “Merchant of Venice,” when I got a sinus infection. Rehearsals were ramping up, so I went to the doctor on my college campus. It turned out that I also had thyroid cancer.
