Meet 80-year-old Betty Simpson, Instagram’s favourite great-grandmother who as of writing this article has a massive following of over 275K.

Betty’s account was created In January by her grandson Zach Belden as a way to support her as she battles cancer. Zach posted on one of their Instagram posts, “Let’s continue to spread the word that cancer CAN be fought, and being happy while fighting it most certainly possible.”

Betty expresses immense gratitude for her followers, or “friends” as she calls them, particularly for Pharrell Williams who has been following Betty since the beginning and has helped spread the word.

We love Betty, so here are a few of her most recent posts and make sure you check her out!
