Photos: 12 Year Old Girl Is Cancer Free After Receiving Prayers From Pope Francis
A brave 12-year-old girl is cancer free after being blessed by the Pope in Italy last year. Not long ago, Grace West of New Jersey was diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer that affects the nerve cells. After intensive medical treatments and what Grace says is the power of her faith, she is fully healed.
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Grace was able to fly to Italy to meet Pope Francis. The Pope kissed her forehead and also said a healing prayer over her. She said that before he prayed over her that the Pope asked Grace to pray for him. When she returned to New Jersey she underwent chemotherapy. On December 11, Grace learned that all of the cancer in her body has been eradicated.
