I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015. I delayed treatment and the cancerous lump grew aggressively from 3cm to 13cm within five months.
Meanwhile, I was being told by my catechism teacher uncle Stephen, about one famous chapel in Sungei Petani (the chapel of Immaculate Conception, Sg. Batu.), where many people experienced miracles and special encounters with Mother Mary.
My first visit to the chapel was in December 2015, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, during which I prayed for a miracle to cure my cancer.
At the end of February 2016, I was admitted to hospital due to the wound infection and constant pus discharge. The doctor arranged a CT scan for me prior to my chemotherapy treatment. I never imagined that I could be healed, at that point in time. With a 13cm x 9cm wound on my left breast and aggressive type of cancer, doctors would say that most probably the cancer cells had already spread to other places. I was very worried and felt hopeless at the same time. I prayed that during my CT scan, Jesus and Mother Mary would be with me. I felt at peace.
The day before I received my CT scan result, I visited the chapel again. I prayed and spoke with mom (Mother Mary). I said, I know that there are a lot of signs showing that I will be okay, but I just need your final assurance that I will be fine. Immediately after saying the prayer, I experienced the presence of Mother Mary. I felt so touched.
Despite the wound and the pain, the result was amazing. The cancer somehow stopped at one point, on the axillary node. It did not spread further to other organs. We were so happy with the result. I could feel that the Lord was and is always with me.
I was baptized on 28 February 2016, one day before my first chemotherapy. I had a lot of pain before the chemotherapy, it often disturbed my sleep. Amazingly after my first day of chemotherapy, my pain was all gone.
The Lord answered my prayers through the powerful intercession of Mother Mary.
According to the doctor, it would take weeks or months for the chemo medicine to take effect but amazingly the pain was gone on the first day. The treatment reacted pretty well and my wound closed completely after the 4th treatment. I finished my last chemo in July and second CT scan on August. The second CT scan result showed no trace of cancer cells! Praise the Lord and all Glory Be to the Lord.
I had my left mastectomy operation on 21 August and everything was fine. I could walk and eat two hours after my operation and I recovered very fast. A lot of people prayed for my speedy recovery. I never felt so strong and I know that my strength came from the joy of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ!
The past one year has been the toughest year in my life ever. A lot of things happened during my sickness. My family and friends were not by my side through bad times. At my weakest point where I had totally lost hope, Jesus never failed to comfort me and send the right people to me.
I thought it was too late and I was going to die. But God is never late, He is just right on time. He has a great plan for me I believe, and I am happy that I have finally returned to my King.
Now I have completed all of my treatments and I am glad to be able to live healthily again. All Glory and Honour to Our Lord Jesus for the gift of healing and hope!
I remember before and during my treatment, I used to visit the chapel frequently to talk with Mother Mary. It gave me a lot of strength to overcome my problems and fear, knowing that she was and will always be there with me and listens to me.
Thank you Mom (Mother Mary) for your powerful intercession. I do not know how to repay you for all the great things that you have done in my life, I pray that those who read my testimony will come to know and experience the love of Jesus through you.
I pray that all the people who come to you in this chapel regardless of whatever crisis they are facing, they will find comfort, love, peace and even healing for all of their illnesses. Amen.
