90-year-old Lady declined chemo, started to travel with her dog instead

Despite being 90 years old and receiving a life-threatening diagnosis, the beautiful Miss Norma was still full of life.

Just days after her husband’s passing, she received a hard diagnose, too. However, Norma decided she doesn’t want to see the inside of any more hospitals, but to see the world, instead.

And so she did. The 90-year-old woman decided to hit the road with her son, daughter-in-law, and their Poodle, Ringo, in their RV.” I’m having the time of my life! I’m done with doctors,” she said.

The woman’s positivity; her energetic spirit and enthusiasm have surprised even her doctor. The Facebook page, Driving Miss Norma, recounts a conversation between them:

We explained to the well-meaning doctor and his student that we live in an RV and that we will be taking her wherever she wants to go. He didn’t hesitate to say, “RIGHT ON!” We asked if he thought us irresponsible for this approach. His reply was telling.

“As doctors,” he said, “we see what treatment looks like everyday. ICU, nursing homes, awful side effects and honestly, there is no guarantee she will survive the initial surgery to remove the mass. You are doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a fantastic trip!”

And now with Ringo as the co-pilot, son Tim and his wife Ramie, Norma is having the time of her life. So far, the adventurous team traveled thousands of miles and they have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.

“We have no idea where or when it will end. We are living in the present moment,” Ramie said. Let the good times rolls, Norma!
