Elkhart, Indiana Woman Celebrates 100th Birthday After Beating Covid-19
I think we can all agree that woman are much stronger than men in almost every way. Leora Martin from the tiny Indiana town of Elkhart is a great example of that. Leora just celebrated her 100th birthday on June 13th, 2020. In April she was diagnosed with Covid-19 and found out that she beat the virus a week before her birthday. That by itself is a show of amazing strength. Apparently, that's not the half of it. Martin also battled her way out of a nasty case of pneumonia last year. Oh yeah, then there's the cancer she beat.
The elderly community are at the highest risk of death after contracting Covid-19. It's great to hear about people like Loera making a full recovery and celebrating her 100th birthday. Last week we brought you the tear jerking story of an Indiana couple that were forced apart for a month due to Covid-19. That was the first time they had been apart for more than a couple days in their 67 year marriage. Click here to read that story.
