A Texas couple who have been married for 46 years have both survived Covid-19, while the wife battled cancer.
Robert and Janice Beecham started to feel symptoms of Covid-19 in March. Robert was taken to the hospital on March 25 and found out he was positive the next day.
Janice had just had surgery in February, after finding out about a second battle with breast cancer and had been given a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer. She also tested positive for Covid-19, but luckily her symptoms were mild.
Janice had not started chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with Covid-19. She later had the treatment and has been declared cancer free, with only preventative radiotherapy left to do.
After surviving cancer and Covid-19, the Beechams say they are feeling fortunate.
"It's a blessing to be here because a lot of people didn't make it," Janice said.
"It would have been impossible to make it with all the odds against you without God, and he has been our help, all these many years," Robert said.
