How Lynda Carter Is Keeping Her Late Husband’s Legacy Alive


Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter lost her husband Robert A. Altman in 2021. He died at the age of 73 due to a rare type of cancer called myelofibrosis. Now, she is hoping to help researchers find a cure for the deadly cancer to honor her late husband.

Lynda recently attended the TGen awards and was given the John S. McCain Leadership Award for her advocacy of research and clinical advances. She shared her gratitude on social media and wrote, “I am so grateful to receive @tgenresearch’s John S. McCain Leadership Award. For over 20 years, TGen has conducted groundbreaking genetics research to discover better, more precise treatments for diseases like cancer and neurological disorders.”

She added, “I lost my vibrant husband Robert to myelofibrosis last year, and I support TGen with the hope that the deadly form of myelofibrosis will one day be curable or survivable. Thank you, Dr. Trent and Dr. Caligiuri for dedicating your lives to such a noble pursuit. You are superstars, and I am so proud to be a part of the TGen community!”

May he rest in peace.
