Norma is 90-years-old this year — but she leads a fuller, far more adventurous life than most of us can imagine.
She has gone through her fair share of tragedy and loss. Just last year, her husband of 67 years passed away. Days after, doctors detected a deadly, cancerous mass in her uterus, and started preparing her for the worst.
Instead of lining up for cancer treatment, which would have involved undergoing major surgery, followed by rounds of radiation and chemotherapy, Norma decided to leave.
She left the hospital and bid farewell to everyone at her nursing home. With her family in tow, Norma hit the road in an RV camper.
They’ve been traveling for the past six months, visiting several stunning national parks and traversing miles of breathtaking, rugged terrain across the country.
