Norma is 90-years-old this year, and has suffered her fair share of tragedy and heartbreak. Just last year, her husband of 67 years passed away, and just days after, doctors found a deadly, cancerous mass in her uterus, and told her she had to undergo chemo to have any chance of survival.
However, instead of undergoing chemo, she decided to take a totally different path that would allow her to live out her days to the fullest.
Instead of choosing cancer treatment, which would have involved major surgeries, several rounds of radiation and chemo, and a whole lot of pain, Norma just decided to leave and explore the vast world around her.
She checked out of the hospital and said goodbye to all her friends at the nursing home, and then, with all her closest family members, hit the wide open road in an RV camper.
For the past six months, they’ve been traveling the country, going to national parks and discovering beautiful new places.
