2015 was not a happy year for this 90 y.o. grandmother from Michigan who is called Norma. First she lost her husband of 67 years and several days later she got news that she had a cancerous mass in her uterus. When it came to choosing her treatment options between chemo, surgery or radiation, she said to her doctors: “I’m ninety years old. I’m hitting the road.”

She started to document her trip and to post her photos on Facebook .

Suffering loss has given Norma some perfect perspective. “Keep praying every day and God will take care of you, even when it feels like you can’t care for yourself.” Her best advice is to talk about the happier times. “Storytelling is really, really helpful,” she said.
