Margaret Page, 41, was found alive in a New Mexico national forest. Page had been in the woods for nearly a month. She was found in her sleeping bag – with her cat. She survived on a limited amount of food and water from a nearby creek. She had packed cat food for her cat, who appeared in better shape than she did. She lost 25 pounds.
The area where Page was found camping had seen average highs reach around 60 degrees with evening lows in the 20s.
Sometimes we are stronger than we can imagine and survive life’s physical as well as emotional challenges.
