90-Year-Old Grandma Refuses Cancer Treatment And Chooses To Enjoy Her Life To The Fullest Instead

90-year-old Norma lost her husband and was also diagnosed with cancer in the span of one week.  She surprised many people by rejecting treatment and heading off to travel the US.

Just two short days after losing her husband of 60 years, Norma was told she had a large cancerous tumor in her uterus. Doctors offered surgery, radiation and chemo, but Norma simply told them, “No, I’m 90 years old. I’m hitting the road.”

And that’s exactly what she did.

Norma’s kids live in a mobile RV and, when Norma told them about her decision, they supported her 100%.
>For the last six months, Norma’s been traveling the US with her family on the trip of a lifetime, in no pain and even, incredibly, seeing signs of her cancer going into partial remission.

When asked if Norma was being irresponsible her doctor said, “We see what cancer treatment looks like every day.”
“[She’s] doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a great trip!”

Norma’s advice is simple: “Keep praying every day that God will take care of you, even when it feels like you can’t care for yourself,” she says.
“Just keep on going every day, that’s about it.”
