Days after her husband of 67 years passed away, 90-years-old Norma was diagnosed with a deadly, cancerous mass in her uterus. Doctors started preparing her for the worst. But she decided to do something that shocked everyone.
Despite loosing the love of her life and her debilitating condition, Norma leads a fuller, far more adventurous life than most of us can imagine. She didn’t let the bad news steal her joy and told her doctors that “she had no interest in any treatment.”
Instead of undergoing major surgery, followed by several sessions of radiation and chemotherapy, Norma decided to leave the hospital. Her kids understood that she was thinking about the continuation of life, rather than the end, and were in complete support of her decision.
After leaving the hospital, she bid farewell to everyone at her nursing home. With her family in tow, the 90-year-old hit the road in an RV camper. The result? Her heartwarming adventure has gone viral.
Norma has now been on the road for 6 months and is thriving! And get this: signs of cancer have reduced and she is in no pain!
