BELTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Thanks to the kindness of strangers, a terminally ill woman has arrived home in Maryland from Alaska, where she was stuck in a hospital after suffering a respiratory crisis on a cruise ship.

WRC-TV reports that 71-year-old Nancy Greathouse of Beltsville arrived shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Strangers had donated more than $60,000 to a GoFundMe page for her air ambulance from the Anchorage hospital where she'd been for two months.

Greathouse has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, along with an autoimmune disease flare-up. She and her husband Paul went to Alaska on a two-week cruise, but she had to be medically evacuated in April.
