This is one 71-year-old grandmother who is practically the definition of cool. Rosemary Capitolo of San Jose, California may be suffering from ovarian cancer, but she's doing so in an upbeat, admirable frame of mind. Capitolo knitted herself a cap that resembled hair for her 2013 Halloween costume. This year, her hair gone due to the effects of chemotherapy, Capitolo is once again having fun with her knitted creation. Granddaughter Megan Shone shared this photo via Twitter, and unsurprisingly, it's become popular with people who enjoy examples of those who take life's bad turns with humor, strength and dignity. Visit Megan's Twitter account and Rosemary's Facebook page to keep up with these inspiring ladies.
