Here’s To Life! This 90-Year-Old Woman Chooses a Road Trip Over Cancer Treatment!

Posted by GreaterGoodness

A cancer diagnosis at the age of 90 may sound like a death sentence to a lot of people, but not to Miss Norma. Instead of going through painful and invasive treatment procedures to evade death, she decided to embrace life.

What better way to do it than to hit the road and make beautiful memories? For Miss Norma, it seems that when it rained, it poured. Her husband was dying in a hospice when she was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Two days after her husband passed away, she found herself seated in the hospital listening to doctors explain her options.

Miss Norma had already made it very clear to her family, and now she made it clear to the doctors that she was not going to undergo chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. She was 90 years old, and she would not spend her final days going through treatment. She decided to choose a different type of therapy. Instead of the invasive cancer treatment, she was going to travel around the country.

Miss Norma clearly understands that life is not about the breaths we take, but the moments that take our breaths away. She has already been to a number of national parks across the country, participated in a traditional Native American ceremony and gone on a hot air balloon ride in Florida.

The best news is that her condition seems better. She is not in pain, and the cancer symptoms have diminished. She is actually thriving while on the road. Miss Norma teaches everyone a lot about how to live life to its fullest and to remain positive, even during the darkest times. Her advice is that everyone should just keep on going, everyday. She also advises people to have fun in order to stay positive. Her take on life is truly inspiring. Follow this link to read more uplifting and inspiring stories about personal journeys.
