My father was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with hepatic metastasis. The doctors felt helpless and did not give him big chances of survival. However, I am well aware of the miracles performed by St Nectarios from Egina (Greece) who is worshipped in Eastern Europe and is known as the "miracle healer" especially for people with cancer. At his monastery in Egina there are daily hundred of people from all around the world praying or giving thanks for regaining their health. I started...

My father was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with hepatic metastasis. The doctors felt helpless and did not give him big chances of survival. However, I am well aware of the miracles performed by St Nectarios from Egina (Greece) who is worshipped in Eastern Europe and is known as the "miracle healer" especially for people with cancer. At his monastery in Egina there are daily hundred of people from all around the world praying or giving thanks for regaining their health. I started praying and fasting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and reading the prayers for St. Nectarios. My father started feeling better immediately, he underwent surgery and after starting chemotherapy his cancer is in remission and he is 100% recuperated and back to all his previous activities. Just wanted to let everybody there is help when everything (including medicine) is helpless. May God and St Nectarios help and bless everybody!

When I was 39 years old I was told that I had Invasive Cervix Cancer. They gave me a 5% chance of making it. Today I'm 58 and cancer free. My Dr. went to bat for me and got me one of the best Doctors in the US to perform the surgery. I spent 3 days in ICU and 9 days in the hospital. Recovery was slow but with God's help I fully recovered without chemo or radiation. My sister died ay 36 of breast cancer 6 month's after starting chemo & radiation. I refused it. My father died 18 days after taking chemo for his throat cancer.

On June 7th, 2011 a mass was found in my kidney,it was cancer. My wife and I were very upset, tears and asking why me, I guess this is what most people do. Then I thought, do I have faith in God or not, He has this under control! Surgery was scheduled for July 1st, a day before my birthday.The surgery lasted 5 hrs. No complication and no more cancer! Later I found out one of the Drs. gave me no chance of surviving the surgery. The first time I got after surgery I walked 10 feet. Next time I...

Later I found out one of the Drs. gave me no chance of surviving the surgery. The first time I got after surgery I walked 10 feet. Next time I took 2 steps and the pain went away and never came back. I went home 5 days later cancer free. I owe everything to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I've been cancer free for a year now and thanks to God I plan on staying that way. Pray everyday and trust in the Lord, for with Him all thing are possible. Mike

In 1996 my son was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, the emotional rollercoaster we were on was unbelievable. He is still in remission and we appreciate every day.

Both my Dad and Auntie died with cancer when they were in their 50's. I still expect to see them and think of them a lot. My cousin had cancer but luckily he survived. I had pre cancerous growths found, on what was left of my bowels, in 2002 and ended up having my bowels removed and a stoma fitted. I am on 49 tablets a day including Morphine tablets and liquid Morphine as the pain from all the operations is a nightmare. Am in pain 24/7. 2 growths were found last week, after an exploratory...

I am on 49 tablets a day including Morphine tablets and liquid Morphine as the pain from all the operations is a nightmare. Am in pain 24/7. 2 growths were found last week, after an exploratory op, and am now waiting for the results of the biopsies. Am keeping everything crossed at the moment. I keep going as I have a little boy who is autistic and I need to be around to take care of him. If the results are bad I will fight every inch of the way. I don't intend to ever give up. I will always miss my Dad and Auntie but also know they would want me to keep going so always think of them whenever things get bad.

My mum passed away from breast cancer in 1980. It was traumatising because we were young when she fell ill, she was separated from my dad at the time and he did not want to tell. We did not get to know until it was well advanced. We lost her a few months afterwards. It was painful for me because she was my rock. I eventually found a more solid rock in Christ. He was introduced to me by elder sister, who also passed in 2005 from breast cancer. Watching my sister, what I found most encouraging...

My mum passed away from breast cancer in 1980. It was traumatising because we were young when she fell ill, she was separated from my dad at the time and he did not want to tell.

He was introduced to me by elder sister, who also passed in 2005 from breast cancer. Watching my sister, what I found most encouraging was her strong faith - even when it became obvious that she would leave us. It hasn't been easy. She left 2 lovely children. The younger of the 2, who is 9 years old became a Christian a year ago. He is so inspiring and reminds me of my sister in some ways. A great woman who went through so much pain, but obviously lived a very fulfilled life.

My wife has untreatable pancreatic cancer. Thanks to a surgeon she had an operation to cut the nerves so there is now little pain. Chemo stopped because it affected her lungs. She's surviving on just morphine but still horse-riding. We're determined to beat this because if we can't, the future is very bleak.

Several people in my family have had cancer but none affected me as deeply as my sister in law. She was diagnosed with ovarian and pancreatic cancer in Aug. 2000 and died exactly six months after her diagnosis in Feb. 2001. It was a bitter fight that she fought to the end. The day before she passed, emaciated, dehydrated and exhausted, she told me to take care of her brother (my husband) and his kids. It's a promise I was proud to keep. The day she died was so harrowing, as she had gone into...

Several people in my family have had cancer but none affected me as deeply as my sister in law. She was diagnosed with ovarian and pancreatic cancer in Aug. 2000 and died exactly six months after her diagnosis in Feb. 2001. It was a bitter fight that she fought to the end. The day before she passed, emaciated, dehydrated and exhausted, she told me to take care of her brother (my husband) and his kids. It's a promise I was proud to keep. The day she died was so harrowing, as she had gone into hospice care the night before and was in a coma. However, she still seemed to know we were in the room. We were all with her, our hands in hers or resting on her arms and legs, when she took her last breath. I have seen the face of cancer. It is beautiful, amazing, inspiring, and it will shatter you, forcing you to put yourself back together again, maybe not the same as before, but stronger and more compassionate.

Just before I turned 10 years old I had my first seizure on a family vacation in New Hampshire. We rushed back to Boston to be seen at Mass General Hospital. It was months before the doctors figured out that I had a rather large brain tumor. It turned my life upside down. After rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment before the tumor was gone. Then about 10 years later the doctors found a growth on my brain stem. Apparently that is a side effect from radiation treatment. Unable to...

Just before I turned 10 years old I had my first seizure on a family vacation in New Hampshire. We rushed back to Boston to be seen at Mass General Hospital. It was months before the doctors figured out that I had a rather large brain tumor. It turned my life upside down. After rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment before the tumor was gone. Then about 10 years later the doctors found a growth on my brain stem. Apparently that is a side effect from radiation treatment. Unable to endure anymore chemo or radiation I turned to acupuncture. It saved my life and helped somewith some of the many side effects that I continue to experience today. But I feel lucky to be alive and thank God every day for all that he has given me.

My grandfather on my father's side died from cancer when I was just a couple months old. I never got to know him, but I was named after him. His name was Alexander, mine is Alexis. I was his first granddaughter. I lost a dear friend on his 18th birthday to cancer. I lost a beloved aunt on my father's side and an aunt on my mother's side to cancer. I have lost people I truly loved to this horrible disease!!
