Cancer is a horrible disease which can come from many things such as the environment, skin care products which if not natural or organic can come with many chemicals and other things we might not be aware of. I am glad that you beat lung Cancer and you can beat this as well. I would recommend you go to Oral Robert Ministries and get a prayer cloth that says Cancer and Incurable Diseases, God told Richard Roberts last year to make these prayer clothes because he knew Cancer would be growing rapidly in the world and many people have called with their testimonies of being healed, their is no power in the cloth itself except you must belief by faith you are healed through Jesus Name, you already know God is a healer so, please do this by faith, may God continue to bless you, your husband and your family. Love Angela." PLEASE MAKE SURE VALERIE HARPER READS THIS"!!! THANK YOU!!!
