Healed from leukaemia

“I thank God for He gives me life”

Take a moment to pray for 10-year-old Emilia who has been fighting leukaemia:

“The first time I went to Baca Ortiz [hospital], I felt like the entire world fell over me,” Emilia remembers. “I do not wish this disease on anyone. It is tough. The chemotherapies let us down. Little by little I was assimilating, because I did not accept the disease. It was there when I clung more to God."

“The first chemotherapy my daughter received affected her heart, gave her tachycardia and put her in intensive care,” adds Liliana, Emilia's mum. "But although the doctors told me that she was not going to survive, my daughter managed to make it.

We prayed a lot for my daughter. My family, friends, the church and even prayer groups at the hospital prayed. Thanks to them Emilia has been healed!”

“I was in intensive care, but I woke up and prayed,” Emilia says. "I had a tube going down my throat. I wanted to talk, but it was impossible. But I remember that a doctor gave me the strength. She said, ‘No, you’re not going to die.’ And I was getting stronger and stronger, and [people] prayed for me and the children of the hospital. I know I will not relapse because God is with me.”

  • Give thanks for Emilia’s testimony. Praise God that the doctors have recently given her the all clear. 
  • Pray for protection over Emilia's future health. Pray in faith that her cancer never returns.
