97-year-old Tennie Ivy was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2020 while in the middle of a global pandemic.

She considered letting this be the end, but couldn't stand the idea of missing her last grandchild's wedding.

"I had to go to that wedding. I had been to all three and it was in Greenville, South Carolina, and I said I've got to get well for that. And I was never sick. No problems," Ivy told Click2Houston.

She went through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. None of it stopped her and she survived.

"I give credit to the doctors, nurses and the Lord," Ivy said.

As of Monday, Oct. 11, Ivy no longer has cancer.

But what she does have are some great memories from her grandson's wedding because she got to go.

COVID delayed the wedding, cancer had her worried she'd miss it, but after all that, Ivy can now say she's been to all her grandchildren's weddings.
