The cutest grandma on Instagram is fighting cancer, inspiring everyone

Betty Simpson is 80 and battling cancer, and she’s more popular on Instagram than you ever will be.

Betty’s great-grandson, Zach Belden, started an Instagram account in January to document Betty’s cancer battle.

Three months later, @grandmabetty33 has nearly a quarter of a million followers and is one of the coolest grandmas around.

Simpson told ABC that her grandson set up the account because of how much he loves her.

“He doesn’t want to lose me and he’s just good to me,” she said.
