Norma found herself in an unexpected position at 90 years old. When most people would be looking into how to peacefully spend the last of their days, Norma was looking into her next big adventure. You see, Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer and Doctors told her that she would need to choose between surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
Norma was 90 and had just said goodbye to her husband of 67 years only days before the diagnosis. She was from Michigan. She hadn’t thought past the death of her husband, and now doctors were giving her painful and lengthy options to try and extend her life.
She thought about their options and came to a surprising conclusion: “I’m 90 years old. I’m hitting the road.”
Luckily for Norma, her son and his wife travel and spend most of their time in an RV. After they got over the shock, they invited her to hop in their RV and cross the country on a road trip adventure! Norma wasn’t able to live alone without her husband, and six months later, she was having the time of her life!
Together, this unlikely group has visited Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, and the Rocky Mountains!
“She’s with her loved ones and that’s really important,” her daughter-in-law said.
Where to next? They’re off to Florida! What a great way to spend the rest of your life!
