Meet Instagram’s new star, 80 year old Betty Simpson, also known as the Instagramma!

Shortly after she was diagnosed with cancer, Betty’s great-grandson, 18 year old Zach, created Betty an Instagram account to update the family on how Betty is doing.

It wasn’t long before Betty gained followers who didn’t even know her. Now Betty has more than 240,000 followers on her ‘grandmabetty33’ account who want to stay updated on how she is doing and hear her words of encouragement for everyone.

Betty’s great-grandson says that he started the account for his friends and family who knew Betty but that it has turned into something much more.

Zach says he is glad that others get to enjoy Betty’s account and that he is happy to share her story which will help him remember her forever.

Betty says she feels like a celebrity every time she gets a new follower and loves posting photos and videos for her followers to enjoy.
