I just read an article on CNN about Angelina Friedman.  She is 101, born on a ship headed for New York during the 1918 flu pandemic. Her Mother died in childbirth and her 2 sisters cared for her until they got to the US and met up with their Father.

 

She has survived cancer, internal bleeding and sepsis.  She tested positive forCovid in March and was in the hospital a week.

 

She just tested positive again.

 

Now that is one tough lady.  Oh, last year she was named Prom Queen at the facility where she lives.

Re: What A Woman She Is At 101.

Very much a feel good story.

 

One little detail is bugging me. She's tested Covid positive twice? What is wrong with her care facility? They need to get on the ball fast and protect this lady!
