The 80-year-old great-grandmother collected more than 86,000 followers after her great-grandson Zach Belden started an account for her in January as a way to support Simpson’s battle with cancer.

Simpson refers to her supportive followers — including Pharrell Williams, who saw her bustin’ a move to his hit song “Happy” — as “friends.”

Simpson told ABC that her grandson set up the account because he loves her so much. “He doesn’t want to lose me and he’s just good to me,” she added.

Both Simpson and Belden are grateful for the outpouring of love and support.

“Let’s continue to spread the word that cancer CAN be fought, and being happy while fighting it most certainly possible.” Belden posted to the account.?size=lIMAGE: @GRANDMABETTY33 ON INSTAGRAM
