Kentucky teen creates Instagram account for dying grandmother

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Mar 14, 2014

You might be surprised at who is the latest Instagram star. It is a great grandmother in Kentucky.

Grandma Betty's great grandson created an account for her because he wanted to record the precious moments that he shares with his great grandmother.

Grandma Betty is battling cancer right now. In fact, doctors say she doesn't have much longer to live. It doesn't seem to be affecting her spirits though.

Zach Belden told WDRB News that he created the account for family and friends and it turned out to be something that thousands of people are now enjoying.

She now has more than 21,000 people following her on Instagram and she loves to keep checking on the growing number.

One of the most popular posts is a video of Grandma Betty dancing to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams.

Her Instagram handle is GrandmaBetty33.
