CAIRO, Ga. (WTXL) — Celebrating life in south Georgia!

Archbold Medical Center just gave ABC 27 this video of Grady General Hospital's first COVID-19 patient being released from the hospital.

As you can see in that video, she defeated the virus!

She thanked the medical team that saved her life, saying, "I love all of y'all, and I'm going to tell you: I'm going to brag on y'all from now until eternity."

The medical center hasn't said who the person is, but they did play the 'Rocky' theme song in her honor and quoted the movie saying:

"Every champion was once a contender who refused to give up."
