90-year-old grandma forgoes cancer treatment, starts cross-country road trip

Norma’s on the trip of a lifetime.

The Michigan grandma, who was diagnosed with uterine cancer two days after her husband died, was given three choices: surgery, radiation or chemotherapy.

Instead, 90-year-old Norma took the fourth option and hit the road.

Since August, the family has visited Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon and Disney World.

Her favorite, she said, was a hot air balloon ride in Florida for Christmas.

“She continues to surprise us on this trip. She’s getting healthier, I think, from eating well and being outside a lot,” Ramie said.

6. Good for her.

I've come to accept the fact we don't live forever and I hope in a similar circumstance I'd do the same thing.
