They say “the secret to a longer and happy life is simply ‘living life to the fullest'” and this woman named Norma nails it.
After losing her husband of 60 years and being diagnosed with cancer only a few days after, she refused to succumb to her illness and decided to go for a trip of lifetime instead.
When doctors told Norma about the large tumor in her uterus and advised her to undergo a series of cancer treatment, she simply refused and said,
“I’m 90 years old. I’m hitting the road.”
So she did ( like it’s the most normal and rational thing to do for a 90-year-old). This “badass,” free spirited woman continues to prove that no one can be too old to try new things, have fun–and just live.
Now she travels a lot and it’s a great thing that she has a great support system too–her family.
She has been to different sights and spots around the US with her loved ones for 6 months, enjoying every bit of her spontaneous yet fun adventures.
Her doctors even agreed with Norma’s decision and said they would probably do the same thing.
“[She’s] doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a great trip!”
Meanwhile, her doctors are seeing signs of her cancer going into partial remission which is good news.
It looks like super Norma is having a grand time travelling.
An obvious happy camper when she tried the hot air balloon ride over central Florida.
Her happiness was contagious when she was lifted in and out of the basket.
It seems Norma’s recent trips are working wonders and she’s showing no signs of slowing down either, despite her condition.
The happiest 90-year-old woman indeed.
When asked what advice she can give,
“Keep praying every day that God will take care of you, even when it feels like you can’t care for yourself,” she said.
“Just keep on going every day, that’s about it,” she added.
Reaching her age is a great accomplishment but
having the same positive disposition in life despite everything she has gone through is so much more. We can’t help but envy her for that. We appreciate the helpful tips to a long and happy life though. What an inspiration!
Watch This Sweet Little Boy Patiently Taking Care of His Grandmother
Awww… He makes me teary eyed!
According to Dr. Karl Pillemer of Cornell University in New York, grandparent-grandchildren relationships are of second best emotional importance, next to parent-children bonds.
This is perhaps the reason why we love to spend more time with our grandparents as they take good care of us, look after us, understand us, and make us happy all the time.
Because of such strong bond, most of the young people who were raised by grandparents become the elders' primary caregivers when they get older and weak.
12-Year-Old Kid With Incurable Disease Covers Eminem’s “Not Afraid”
This boy is an inspiration. Also, he’s incredibly talented!
We all fight different battles in life.
12-year-old Sparsh Shah of Iselin, New Jersey has a unique struggle. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, an incurable disease that affects the bones. Because of this disorder, the boy has extremely brittle bones and so he can’t even walk or run like normal kids. Having this condition means even a strong hand shake can possibly break his bones.
Despite his difficult physical challenges, however, what’s amazing about Sparsh is his strong spirit.
A Student Hand-Built His Own Yurt and Lives Rent-Free The Whole School Year Through
What better way to avoid a mountain of student debt…
The cost of a college education these days is sky-high, and university attendees can expect to amass thousands of dollars in student loans even before they graduate.
Add that to the cost of books, board and lodging, and anyone hoping to get a degree will have pretty much dug themselves into a grave of debt before they even land a lucrative job.
Lucky for this Canadian student from the Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia, he channeled his love for the outdoors and built his own yurt to stay in rent-free for the duration of the school year.
