An Indiana woman turned 100 with coronavirus in the rearview mirror.
Leora Martin, a resident of Greenleaf Health Campus, an assisted living facility in the state, recently learned that a positive diagnosis of COVID-19 was shaken.
The news came a week before his birthday on June 13, but it was not a surprise, according to ABC11. That’s because Martin is no stranger to adversity, and she is a pro at recovering. Last year, she beat pneumonia. She is also a cancer survivor. And she lived through World War II.

To celebrate the historic year, she and her California-living twin sister caught up with Zoom, singing happy birthday to each other and remembering their childhood.
Recalling her recovery from COVID-19 and other medical triumphs, Martin told The Elkhart Truth that she is relieved to be safe. “You have to remember, I’ve been through cancer,” she said. “I had to go to the hospital for five days with rods on my body, that was not comfortable, but I survived. They also didn’t think I’d survive pneumonia last year, but I did. “
