Miss Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer, a life-threatening diagnosis. Norma got her diagnosis just days after her husband passed. Ready to live the rest of her life to the fullest, Norma decided to hit the road with her son, daughter-in-law, and their poodle, Ringo, in their motor home.
On her Facebook page Miss Norma discusses her conversation with her doctor.
“We explained to the well-meaning doctor and his student that we live in an RV and that we will be taking her wherever she wants to go. He didn’t hesitate to say, “RIGHT ON!” We asked if he thought us irresponsible for this approach. His reply was telling.”
“As doctors,” he said, “we see what cancer treatment looks like everyday. ICU, nursing homes, awful side effects and honestly, there is no guarantee she will survive the initial surgery to remove the mass. You are doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a fantastic trip!”
Now with Ringo as their co-pilot, son Tim and his wife Ramie chauffeur the well-deserving Norma on adventures across the country.
