91 Year Old Skips Chemo, Takes Incredible Road Trip Instead

download-1
“Over these past 12 months, all of us have learned so much about living, caring, loving and embracing the present moment. No matter where we are, when asked where her favorite spot has been on this trip, Norma Jean Bauerschmidt now says, ‘Right here!’ We have also learned so much about the human spirit and the beauty of people from all over the world.”

Norma famously turned down chemotherapy and instead took a road trip. She famously documented it all. Norma has passed away at the age of 91, but she sure went out with a big bang.

Norma’s Facebook page,  Facebook page “Driving Miss Norma”, is a compilation of things she chose to do rather than endure the grips of chemotherapy. She now has over 400,000 fans.

“We found ourselves sitting in an OB/GYN office talking about treatment options,” a post read. “You know the drill: surgery, then radiation and chemo in some order. When the doctor was finished he asked her how she would like to proceed.

 After being diagnosed with uterine cancer, Norma had her daughter-in-law set up a Facebook page for her and opted out of treatments. She instead took a road trip.

“A tiny woman at 101 pounds and under five-feet tall, an exhausted Norma looked the young doctor dead in the eye and with the strongest voice she could muster, said, ‘I’m 90-years-old, I’m hitting the road.’”

      1. Hi JAGG,
        I watched Lorraine Day speaking to Donald Barrett.
        And yes .. what she says it true.
        She says no to vitamin supplements .. just fruit & veg .. plenty of water & exercise.
        “People are gorging themselves on animal products” .. we need protein & legumes & nuts are not a substitute .. also many people & especially later in life cannot digest beans & lentils.
        I cannot agree with this .. night blindness is a Vitamin A deficiency .. cramps & muscle spasms is Magnesium deficiency & also some migraine headaches .. before taking med’s for migrain headaches get a blood test to see if you aren’t suffering hypoglycemia .. Malabar Chai will fix an gassy stomach & diarrhea .. craving coffee is Vitamin B5 / Pantothentic Acid deficiency .. I need CoQ10 it makes all the difference.
        Ian Gawler was a dead duck .. he went through a much tougher regime to save himself.
        Only that Dr. Day’s explanation seems to simple .. (?)
        Stay cool man.
        Cheers

  1. Lecithin is an emulsifier .. breaks down fat to minute particles so that the cells in the body can absorbed fats & use them to make energy .. the liver makes lecithin .. it is vital to the body’s function .. got rid of my high cholesterol in no time .. the GP was so pissed off.

  2. After work all the blokes gather at the local watering hole .. beer is full of B Vitamins .. after a hard days work it it the alcohol that they crave or the B vitamins?
    Further .. is it possible that alcoholism is caused .. not by degeneracy & deviance traits in a persons character .. but a/some Vitamin & Mineral deficiencies ?
    No one ever looked & it could be the answer to alcoholism .. but everyone is too stupid to theories.
