ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) – Miss Norma, who gained internet fame when she opted out of cancer treatment and chose to travel the U.S., made a stop at Georgia Aquarium last week.

Miss Norma celebrated her 91st birthday on March 31 at the Georgia Aquarium, among the Californian sea lions, whale sharks, African penguins and of course birthday cake!

Norma, her son Time and daughter-n-law, Ramie, were in Atlanta as part of their trip around the U.S. and Norma had never seen a whale shark. However, luckily for Norman, the Georgia Aquarium has four whale sharks in the Ocean Voyager Built by Home Depot exhibit.

She also met a California sea lion named Diego, an African penguin named Ruby and celebrated her birthday among the thousands of marine life at the aquarium with a whale shark themed birthday cake.

Miss Norma found out she had cancer in 2015 around the same time her husband passed away. However, she took the road less traveled and decided to 'hit the road' instead of going through radiation and chemo treatment. For more information on Miss Norma's journey click here.
