Couple married 71 years completes COVID-19 recovery at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital


A couple married 71 years truly overcame the odds against them in battling COVID-19. After Nellie and Charles Anness contracted the virus at a church event, they were treated for their symptoms at an acute care hospital then transferred to Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital. Their love for each other coupled with intensive inpatient rehabilitation therapy for 16 days helped the couple transition back home, where they could be together again. Their speech-language pathologist Emily Goggin agrees, ''I think love inspires us to be motivated to wake up each day- to get out of bed each day." (Source: WLEX)
