Grandma Betty

March 24, 2014


There can’t be many grandmothers on Instagram, but this 80-year-old has become an internet sensation – and Henry’s latest obsession.

Grandma Betty’s great grandson Zach set up the account after his grandmother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He wanted to bring some joy and excitement to the short time she has left and in just under 3 months, the account has gained over 428,000 followers.

She’s become somewhat of a local celebrity and has now been featured not only in national press but globally, on Huffingtonpost.co.uk, CNN and ABC News.

Followers’ favourite posts are Grandma Betty’s famous dancing clips to Pharrell’s Happy, Celebration and Walking On Sunshine which has amassed almost 56,000 likes alone.
