God healed Ed in April of 1990 from a hopeless diagnosis of final stage cancer. Over the course of failed cancer treatments, his church deacons prayed over him. And, to the human mind, the impossible happened!
When doctors sat him down to share his diagnosis, it was grim.
“The results were in. We can keep you comfortable, we can extend your life through chemotherapy. You have an incurable form of cancer already in it’s final stage,” Ed details in his story video. “A rare form of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It’s already spread throughout your body.”
He believed the stage four lymphoma was 100% fatal and began treatments.
In the midst of all of this, a friend at church shared James 5:13 which says “If anyone of you are sick, you should call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.” He felt like this part of scripture was meant for Ed at the time.
The deacons of his church chose to gather and pray for him. Months went by, with no signs of healing or positive change for Ed. “The chemotherapy was not working,” he said. “There was no progress; none. There was no plan b.”
Ed detailed the healing journey God took him on to address his heart after years of “pride and arrogance.”
God healed his body of terminal cancer
Weeks following an annual appointment, doctors reviewed tests and determined all of the cancer had left Ed’s body.
Doubtful, doctors urged him to continue medication following the finding. But on a long drive home, he turned the radio on and James 5, the same verses his friend shared with him months prior, was read.
“I knew I had been healed. And I knew I had been forgiven. April 20, 1990. And I’m still here.”
