Dialysis patient celebrates 100th birthday

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A Meridian dialysis patient got quite the surprise Monday when family and friends threw her a surprise birthday party.

Glenneth Berry will be 100 years old Tuesday. Caretakers at Fresenius Kidney Care wanted to recognize the occasion.

Fresenius brought in cake, presents and even a crown to make Berry feel like a queen.

She was overwhelmed with emotion as soon as she came inside the building.

"I am over this surprise and thank you all so kindly. But this has taken ten years off of my life so today I am 90," joked Berry.

Berry has been on dialysis for over ten years and is doing well.
