A CBS 5 Pay It Forward recipient is marking a major milestone.

Peggy Hodgson is celebrating her 100th birthday.

"Grandma Peg," as she's affectionately called, has been a volunteer at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center for 30 years.

She's touched the lives of hundreds of patients.

The hospital threw her a surprise birthday party Wednesday.

CBS 5 News asked her the secret to aging well.

"I don't know. I don't eat a lot. I don't drink. Maybe I should," Hodgson said.

When Hodgson was picked as a Pay It Forward recipient a few years back and awarded $500, she immediately donated it to the hospital.
