US woman drives Covid out after 115-day battle, finds surprise gift awaiting her
Janice was in hospital and rehabilitation centres for about 115 days, including a coma for 57 days, fighting to survive against the coronavirus
What reward would you expect if you emerge victorious in a fight against the deadly coronavirus? Janice Cockfield, who battled Covid-19 for 115 days, was gifted a ‘first-class trip’ of her dreams for Christmas.
The miracle survivor from South Fulton in the US was surprised by her employer Delta Airlines after the company's CEO Ed Bastian announced a first-class trip for her to anywhere in the world.
Cockfield's story came to light after sisters Janice and Janese shared their medical struggle in a television interview - everything that the family had to go through after Janice was hospitalised owing to a brush with the novel coronavirus. It was a phenomenal story of survival as Janice was in hospital and rehabilitation centres for about 115 days, including a coma for 57 days, fighting to survive against the coronavirus.
Janice Cockfield's story would inspire all those who have been stricken by the coronavirus.
The ordeal of the 59-year-old went viral on social media following which Janice received a message from the Delta Airlines chief announcing a gift of her dreams for the courage and strength she showed during the tough time.
The message from her company’s CEO Bastian read: "Please let Janice know while she was in the coma, we (including myself) were following her progress daily and including her in our prayers. She is a miracle and we are so proud of her strength in this fight.
"Also, let her know I can't wait to send her and her sister on a first-class trip, on me, anywhere in the world we fly when she's able to travel. Merry Christmas!"
The Cockfield sisters thanked the Delta CEO and thousands of people who stood by them during the period of crisis.
