When Fidencio Sanchez pushed his ice cream cart to work again on Monday, he showed the world his resiliency in light of several recent tragedies in his life.

Thanks to a stranger setting him up a GoFundMe page to help the 89-year-old to retire and pay for his family's healthcare costs, he is now over $283,000 richer and can finally empty out the ice cream cart for the last time.

Here he is on a Facebook Live session, getting some of the fame he deserves:
