Many individuals wish to grow old and see their children and grandkids, but sadly, some people died before they could realize their most cherished goals. However, one woman, Kane Tanaka, has been able to live out her life's wishes for more than three decades.
Kane, a Japanese-born supercentenarian, was born on January 2nd, 1903, in Tokyo. She is the world's oldest living person, according to Guinness World Records, and she's still going strong at 118 years old.
Tanaka is a survivor of numerous serious ailments, including typhoid, cancer, and many more. According to Wikipedia, she was 45 when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but surgery saved her life and she is now doing well again. In addition, at the age of 103, she was discovered to have colorectal cancer. Despite this, she is still in excellent condition. When she turned 107, her son and his wife wrote a book on her life and longevity titled "In good and difficult times, 107 years old."
According to Kane's interview responses, the cause for her long life is her faith in God, family, and food. She hopes to live to be 120 years old. On the 9th of March, 2019, Guinness World Records presented Tanaka with the title of "World Oldest Living Person." She has five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren at the time of this writing.
