Kate  – Healed of Stage 4 Breast Cancer
United Kingdom

In the summer of 2014, I was diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer. My husband and I were told that the cancer was inoperable but could be treated. However a couple of months later, I was told that the cancer was stage four, or advanced, and had spread around my heart. This was a very hard thing to hear, but my family and I decided not to give up hope and to leave the door open for God’s healing power. I knew that I was surrounded by prayer, and that Jesus tells us “If two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” (Mat 18:19)

I spent a lot of time studying scripture and while I was ill I found Cindy Cox’s wonderful bible studies online. As I began to understand the God who heals – ‘Jehovah Rapha’ –and the concept of ‘Sozo’, the salvation won by Christ that encompasses not only redemption but also well-being and healing, I felt as if was coming out of the darkness. I read the myriad accounts of Jesus’s healings in the gospels, and reflected on Isaiah’s prophecy, that Jesus “was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5). I devoured God’s word like medicine!

I also contacted the Christian Healing Mission, who in turn introduced me to the healing prayer team at Whaddon Way Church in Bletchley, who would pray with me, lay hands on me and anoint me, before each stage of treatment. It is hard to express how powerful the experience was - at times it was as if electricity was passing through my body, and I had the powerful impression that the cancer was leaving my body and passing into the air like dust motes.

On the day before I was told of my worsening prognosis, I woke from a powerful dream in which I had tried, but had been unable, to lock a series of doors (a locked door is supposedly a dream symbol for an irreversible situation). That evening, one of the healing team told me that she been prompted to share with me Psalm 24:7-8.  Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. I knew then that God was telling me to leave the door open for Him to heal me.

The cancer began to shrink even before the commencement of conventional medical treatment. All I could say to the puzzled radiologist was, “There’s a lot of people praying for me.” Then following chemotherapy, the malignancy around my heart disappeared. By the beginning of 2015, the situation had improved so much that I was able to have surgery to remove most of the cancer. Then, following radiotherapy, we were given the amazing news that scans no longer showed any evidence of cancer in my body! It was more than I had ever really dared to hope for, and even the marvelous medics who did so much for me, were amazed.

I believe that it is God’s word and the prayer that has surrounded me that has enabled me to defy the odds. Praise the Lord!
