Norcross Georgia native Nancy Long celebrated her 80th birthday in an unusual fashion: she went skydiving with her son.
Long, who turns 80 on October 5, said she doesn't feel a day over 40 and she has the lifestyle to prove it. She dances with the Senior Follies on cruise ships and went parasailing at 74. She said she won't let old age hold her back.
The mother and grandmother finished her doctorate at 68.
