Vivian Cameron has proved that age, is nothing but a number. In October of 2015, Vivian ended up with sepsis, she spent a week on life support and the priest even read her last rights. At 87 years old the chance of Vivian pulling through was slim, but Vivian wasn't ready to stop fighting, in more ways than one. After getting released from the hospital, she spent weeks in a rehab center to gain back her strength. She was eventually sent home in a wheelchair and told she might not ever walk again. But yet again, Vivian proved them wrong and is back to doing things she was a year ago. "You have to keep fighting, if you give up there is just no point in anything," she said. "I had the will to live and wasn't ready to go yet."
