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.
“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.’”
