Noyek was honored at the Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fla., for her 38 years of service, where she picks up and delivers mail. The do-gooder does not plan on stopping to help out any time soon.

"Volunteering has been important to me for as long as I can remember," Noyek told the news outlet. "I feel I want to give back. I think I'm very fortunate, very lucky, very blessed."

A survivor of colon cancer, Noyek has outlived two husbands and seven siblings and lives completely on her own.
