Grandma who skipped chemotherapy for road trip dies
Earlier this year, Norma Bauerschmidt, a 91-year-old Michigan woman made headlines for deciding to forgo cancer treatments to fulfill her dream of going on a cross-country road trip.
On Friday, her family shared the news that "Miss Norma" had passed away. "Today we are letting go," the family wrote on the Facebook page Driving Miss Norma where they shared Norma's adventures.
In early September, the family posted about their intent to stay in San Juan Island in Washington due to Miss Norma's declining health.
"We have been slowly coming to terms with the fact that our grand adventure with Miss Norma may be coming to a close. Her health is beginning to decline and we have been trying to figure out how to tell the whole world," they wrote.
During her last days, Miss Norma required an oxygen tank and the care of a hospice nurse.
