Helen Rizzo has seen a lot in her 100 years and she takes it all in stride.
"In life, if you can't change it, you accept it and you don't hold a grudge."
That's Helen's philosophy.
Diagnosed at 30 with cardiomyopathy, Helen took her doctor's advice and learned how to take it easy and not sweat the small stuff.
"My doctor told me that if I took care of myself and followed his advice I would outlive him, and he was right," she says with a sparkle in her eyes.
Helen was born March 21, 1914, to Luigi and Pasqualena Barbone, and raised in Norristown.
