87-year-old hospice patient asks doctors to let her live until Women's March

Saturday's Women's March saw women and men of all ages and colors united across the globe, fighting for their voices to be heard.

87-year-old hospice patient Mary Tanasse, the matriarch of her family, was not going to miss the opportunity to march with her children and grandchildren in Olympia, Washington, despite having terminal cancer.

"I asked them 'Please let me live until this march' because it was so important for me to model what I feel is right for my family", Mary said to Seattle, Washington's, King 5 news.

"I made it and it's a beautiful day", she said. "I praise God and hopefully the nation will make an impact so we'll all be heard."

Girl power.
