A Georgian woman who was suffering from stage 4 brain cancer made a miraculous recovery recently and the reason why is amazing.
According to Ashley Halford, 35, God is the reason why she recovered.
“I credit my recovery to God, 100 percent,” Hallford recently told Atlanta news station WXIA. “I always had strong faith, but we’re only human. I still worried while I was sick. Part of me held onto it and worried, and another part of me gave it to God.”
Halford started struggling with brain cancer one month into a pregnancy 10 years ago. At the time, she was prescribed a “medication and recovery” routine that was designed to shrink the tumor.
At first, it worked, but eventually she was shocked when she saw an updated image of the tumor.
“This time, it didn’t shrink — it got bigger,” she recalled.
Conservative Tribune reports:
A week after Hallford gave birth to her son Harvey on Nov. 17, 2007 — who amazingly was born without any problems whatsoever — doctors removed the lump and sent it in for testing. But by the time Hallford learned that she had stage 4 brain cancer, the disease had already spread to her brain, her lungs and even her liver.
Even worse, her chances of survival were slim, as the brain tumor sat in an inoperable part of the cranium where “only God’s hands could go,” Hallford said.
Without many other options available to them, Hallford’s doctors then began treating her with every form of chemotherapy available, hoping something might work. Meanwhile, she turned to faith.
“In February or March 2008, at my church, they started praying and fasting, for the whole month,” she said. “I continued chemo through July 2008, and then had more scans to check progress. I was praying because if there was no change or things were worse, I would be out of options.”
“They said, ‘The radiologist report shows no evidence of disease present,’” she explained. “I was so dumbfounded by what she said, that I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ She said, ‘It means you’re in remission.’”
Halford made it clear that she is thankful and wants to spread hope to other people struggling from major medical issues.
“I just want to spread hope,” she said. “When I speak at churches, I speak about the fear. The fear and uncertainty, especially not knowing what I had. It’s scary.
“I want to give people the strength to go on — even when it comes to infertility,” she concluded. “And if that’s what I could do in life, I would die happy one day.”
What a beautiful story. Halford’s story needs to be heard, share it on social media and leave a comment below.
