"I googled the internet," the senior citizen said. "The life expectancy of multiple myeloma patients is around 4 years. Now, it is 10 years. When I was diagnosed, I hoped for 3 months to settle my personal matters. I developed kidney failure, with creatinine over 1000. I was shivering and had lost considerable weight. My skin was red and I looked terrible.
"A friend suggested that I pray and after my prayer, my body was at peace and I recovered. Not fully but I surpassed the life expectancy of 4 years. "
I was glad for him. I had met a relative of this senior citizen just 1 day ago at an Association lunch. She said that he lived so long because he could afford expensive drugs. A woman with the same diagnosis died after 3 years.
So, was it the faith or the expensive drugs that prolonged his life? He had his belief now.
