TikTok star died of skin cancer

Kassidy Pierson, who used TikTok to document her life with terminal cancer, has died.

For more than 200,000 users on TikTok, Kassidy Pierson’s @ohhkayypee profile was a safe and educational place to learn more about cancer and get a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with an incurable disease.

Kassidy Pierson, 27, had been battling melanoma for six years. She used TikTok to create videos educating others about skin cancer. She also shared snippets from her own cancer story. The melanoma is treatable, but Kassidy said in a video that she had exhausted all treatment options and that the cancer was « too advanced ».

« Lying Dying »

Although Kassidy has a funny and quirky demeanor in all of her videos, she has never withheld information from her followers. Her biography said: « Dying ».

On August 25th, Kassidy took advantage of the platform to give her followers a look back at their last days. She explained that she was not doing well on the first day, but that she was slowly improving. Then she shared about her plans to go outside and enjoy the nice weather. Kassidy remained hopeful, but also informed her fans that she would no longer post daily because this was « just not realistic ».

After Kassidy’s video on August 25, her profile remained inactive. On September 9th, Kassidy’s sister, Kasey Metzger, reached out to Kassidy’s account to inform her fans of heartbreaking news: Kassidy had passed away.

« She was with her fiancé. She wasn’t alone. She wasn’t in pain, » Kasey assured the audience. As she wiped back tears, she continued, « I can’t tell you how many times she just collapsed crying because she couldn’t believe how many people just loved her on this platform. Thank you for all that you did for them.  »


There will be a slideshow video coming soon. Thank you for all your support. She was loved. And finally… get your skin checked.
