Summary
When Miss Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer, she decided not to confine herself to a hospital bed for what could be her last stay. At ninety years old she took off on a cross-country journey with three professional nomads: her retired son Tim, his wife Ramie, and their standard poodle Ringo. In their thirty-six-foot RV this once timid woman said 'yes' to living in the face of death, found her health improving, and strengthened bonds with her family and with strangers who welcomed them with kindness and open hearts
Summary
A full-length memoir based on the popular Facebook page of the same name chronicles the remarkable cross-country journey of the effervescent 90-year-old Miss Norma, who in the face of terminal illness embarked on a transformative road trip with her son, daughter-in-law and giant poodle
