In no particular order, here are a few of the toughest people who fought to survive!

8 – Adrian Carton de Wiart
Surviving one war makes anyone tough. Surviving four wars essentially makes that person superman! Adrian Carton de Wiart fought and survived in 4 wars, including both world wars, while being shot in the stomach, groin, head, hand, ankle, hip and leg. He also survived two plane crashes. Oh yeah, he also managed to escape from a Italian prison of war camp, where he finally was able to escape on his fifth attempt. Just to show how tough he is, he once TORE OFF his OWN fingers when a doctor refused to amputate them! Just…..wow. In World Wore 1 he was severely wounded on eight occasions. Having previously lost an eye and a hand in battle, Carton de Wiart, as commanding officer, was seen by his men pulling the pins off grenades out with his teeth and hurling them with his one good arm during a battle. While recuperating from all the injuries, Carton de Wiart received a glass eye, but it caused him such discomfort that he allegedly threw it from a taxi and decided just to wear an eye patch. During the Second Battle of Ypres, the Germans launched an artillery barrage in which Carton de Wiart’s left hand was shattered. Yep, that’s when he tore off two of his fingers because the doctor refused to amputate them. Amazingly, Carton de Wiart lived to the old age of 83! What’s the toughest thing YOU’VE ever done?

7 – Mauro Prosperi
Imagine having to run an ultramarathon. That’s already painful enough. But imagine having to run a marathon in the desert! The Marathon des Sables has been called the toughest foot race on Earth. This six-day annual ultramarathon covers 156 miles — roughly the same as six regular marathons! It takes place in the Sahara Desert, specifically southern Morocco. This is the event that pushed Italian police officer and former Olympic pentathlete Mauro Prosperi to the limit. He decided to take on a new challenge and entered the race in 1994. To make a long story short, everything was fine until the fourth day. Elevated temperatures of 115 degrees fahrenheit and high winds brought on an unexpected sandstorm that caused organizers to pause the race for the day. While other competitors waited out the storm, Mauro decided to continue because he didn’t want to lose his spot in the race. However, that proved to not be the smartest decision. Because he couldn’t tell where he was going in the storm, he completely got lost. After 24 hours, he ran out of food and water. In an attempt to stay hydrated, Prosperi sucked on wet wipes, licked morning dew off rocks, and drank his own pee while it remained relatively clear. He ate bird eggs, beetles, bats and lizards to survive! After 9 days alone in the desert, he was finally found. Despite starting in Morocco, Prosperi had traveled 180 miles from where he disappeared, unknowingly wandering into Algeria. Prosperi had lost 40 pounds in nine days! Prosperi re-entered the race in 2012 finishing in 131st place, finally able to complete what he had started almost 20 years earlier.

6 – Anna Renault
Like many people, Anna Renault is a cancer survivor. The difference with Anna is that she’s had cancer NINE times. At 27, Anna was diagnosed with her first cancer, uterine cancer. However, she wasn’t treated right away because her doctor told her that she was too young to have that kind of cancer. But, she knew something was wrong, so she decided to get a second opinion, one that saved her life. In 1982, she was diagnosed with skin cancer, which was of course also treated successfully.
