“When Alder Allensworth achieves one audacious goal, she goes after another one.

So far, the 60-year-old cancer survivor has sailed 1,200 miles solo on a small boat, backpacked 500 miles alone on a pilgrimage from France to Spain, become a registered nurse, written an award-winning book, and worked with a sailing foundation for disabled veterans.

“I’ve always had a zest for life,” Allensworth said.
