After finding out she had cancer, a 90-year-old Michigan woman told doctors she was hitting the road.  As WPIX reports, Norma skipped treatment to travel the country with her son and daughter-in-law.

For the past six months, they've taken Norma, along with her poodle Ringo, on the adventure of a lifetime.  They've visited Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon and Disney World, according to WPIX.

Her family has been documenting her travels on their "Driving Miss Norma" Facebook page.
