Nora Purmort caught our attention when she documented her husband Aaron's battle with brain cancer in an unflinching series of blogs and tweets that kept us giggle-weeping stupidly in front of our monitors. In late November, Aaron died. But as Purmort would have it, "It's not a cancer story. It's a love story. With some cancer." Now her Twitter remains a bright beacon of hope bursting from the heart of a straight-talking widow. Purmort swings 140 characters like someone who finds grand life lessons in inconsequential, everyday adventures like doing a load of laundry or sitting alone with a glass of wine. Her cheeky observations run from Tinder to single parenting with an easy optimism and honest-to-god grace. To stay young, loving life, and #stillkickin, follow this badass mother of dragons.
