Grandma Battling Cancer Becomes Instagram Darling, Gets Shout-out From Pharrell

Betty Simpson is Instagram’s favorite grandma.

Simpson, an 80-year-old battling cancer, became an IG staple after her great-grandson Zack Belden created the account for her in order for people to show her some love during her battle.

“He loves me so much, that’s why he did it,” Simpson said of her great-grandson. “He doesn’t want to lose me and he’s just good to me.”

Already two months into her account, Simpson already hit celeb status and has reached over 169,000 followers and counting. Even mega producer/singer/songwriter Pharrell showed her love after Grandma Betty did a “Happy” dance for followers to see.
