90-year-old Woman Forgoes Chemo For Trip of a Lifetime

The first explorer whom I want to celebrate in my new blog series is not a famous adventurer but a ¬†woman who inspires us all by following her heart. Thank you, azcentral and others who shared this on Facebook. Here’s her story:

Two days after her husband died, Miss Norma was told she had cancer. Instead of undergoing chemo and radiation, she told the doctors, “I’m 90 years old, I’m hitting the road!” She hopped in her son’s RV and set out to live life to the fullest. And she did.

According to her family, Miss Norma passed away Sept. 30 after a year on the road. She was 91 years old. http://azc.cc/2dnSHk1
