At 90 years old, just two days after her husband of 67 years passed away, Norma was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Cancer treatment can be grueling and in Norma's case, it would be risky. According to her son on their Facebook page Driving Miss Norma, her doctor said that in addition to the much lower quality of life she would have had while going through treatment there was no guarantee that she would survive the initial surgery at all. 

Instead of going through with treatment she's been lucky enough to hop in an RV and travel with her son and daughter-in-law. 



They take her anywhere she wants to go and have been documenting their travels. She's become an inspiration to others who are in the process of making tough choices at the end of life.

Deadpool wants anyone who has the balls to do it to check themselves for cancer. Although Deadpool has a tendency to joke about everything, you should seriously heed that warning. You don't want to end up having to be part of a secret experiment that will give you and your cancer regenerative capabilities that will leave you looking like Wade Wilson.

Something magical happens when this group of crochet enthusiasts meet to make dreams come true.

Former oncology nurse and mom Holly Christensen has started a group called The Magic Yarn Project, a clan of dedicated crocheters that meet to make Disney princess wigs for children with cancer.

A daughter of one of Christensen's friends was diagnosed with lymphoma so she decided to make a Rapunzel yarn wig. Here's what she told Babble:

"I knew she would be going through a difficult time, and that no one would be able to take her suffering away. I also knew that losing her long, curly blonde hair at not even 3 years old would be difficult for her, so I figured that the yarn wig could help bring a little magic and fun to a difficult time in her life."

Designs include princess Elsa and Anna from Frozen and princess Jasmine from Aladdin.

The group has a GoFundMe account set up to help fund even more wigs for children around the world battling cancer.

Daniel Fleetwood, the terminal cancer patient who charmed the Internet and ultimately had his wish come true of seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens early, has died. He was 32.

The Star Wars superfan was treated to an advance screening of the new film last Thursday after an Internet campaign brought global attention to his situation.

He was dying and his final wish was to see this movie.

His wish was granted, but in a bittersweet turn—Fleetwood died Tuesday in his sleep at home.

Star Wars actors (like Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew and John Boyega) and others associated with the film sent their well wishes to his family and remembered him for the amazing fan that he was.

Daniel has now become one with The Force.

This is one of those stories where you don't know if you should feel sad or grossed out.

A man in China has married a realistic sex doll because he has terminal cancer and wants to feel the joy of marriage without leaving behind a grieving widow.

The 28-year-old man has not yet been identified, but some are suggesting this could all just be a marketing stunt.

Nevertheless, the (happy?) couple had one beautiful wedding photo shoot...

We wish the couple much happiness. And the man many nights of fapping.

This is what you call commitment to a cause.

A Texas man who doctor's say should have already died is hanging on as long as he can just to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Daniel Fleetwood, 32, suffers from a connective tissue cancer. His doctor's gave him two months to live back in July, but he is fighting to make it at least to the Dec. 18 release of the film.

"Judging by how progressive the disease has gotten in the past two months, I really don't think that I'll be able to make it," he told KPRC.

The hashtag #ForceForDaniel has been started to encourage the franchise to set up a special screening for Fleetwood ahead of the worldwide premiere.

Star Wars stars Mark Hamill and John Boyega have both been retweeting messages in support of the campaign.
