Colo-rectal cancer treatment protection
My on-line friend, Gary Frazier passed this fine
testimony on to me, Gary being a friend of Larry's wife, Janice. Larry was protected from
treatment complications, was quickly healed, and seems likely to have been miraculously
"My name is Larry Maxwell and this is my testimony
about God healing me of cancer.
In late July of 2006 I went to the Doctor and upon
his initial examination I was told that I had colo-rectal cancer. I did not accept that
report. The Doctor ordered a CAT scan and then a Colonoscopy. Both tests came
back negative, no cancer. Since the Doctor was sure it was cancer, we decided to go get
a second opinion.
After the second Doctor’s exam, he told me that I
had cancer. I still did not believe that report. I was scheduled for another
Colonoscopy with a biopsy and then a PET scan. Both results came back showing the tumor
had specks of cancer cells in it.
One night my wife, Janice and I lay in bed crying
together about the news of cancer, and the Lord gave me a vision, which I shared with Janice
the next morning. “I was standing on the shore of a large body of water. On the
shore was a one-man sailboat with a beautiful multi-colored sail. I looked up at the
sky which was black and dark like a big storm was coming. As I saw this, the Lord
showed me the shore on the other side of the water. There were many people standing on
the shore. There was a bright light like the sun was shining there. I could only
see images and silhouettes and the Lord revealed to me that these were my prayer warriors who
would be interceding for me.”
My treatments began in August 2006 with chemo and
radiation therapy to shrink the tumor. It was the size of a small TV remote
control. I had 28 treatments with no side effects, no problems which I believe was
God’s protection. The next step was the main surgery on November 29, 2006, that took
place four weeks after my last radiation treatment. After surgery when I was finally moved to
my room, I felt great and had no pain. Praise the Lord!! I had no problems, no pain and
needed no pain medication. The Lord protected me again.
After my recovery from the surgery a port was
surgically inserted just below my collar bone. Again after surgery I had no pain and
needed no pain medication.
In January 2007 I started chemo treatments.
I went on Tuesdays and the treatments would last six hours or more. I then wore a pump
for 46 hours and went back on Thursdays to have it all removed. The Oncologist
explained the side effects of the chemo, but I had no problems, no pain, and no nausea.
I praise God for His intervention and protection again. Thank you
The final step in September 2007, I had another
PET scan done. It showed no cancer anywhere. I am completely cancer-free.
Praise the Lord!!
No matter what your circumstances are, if you have
faith in the Lord and in prayer, nothing is impossible. I had people interceding for me
from Soviet Russia, Arizona, Florida, West Virginia, Missouri, Georgia, Alabama,
California, Montana, and the list goes on and on. God's people prayed and He
answered. Nothing is so big that God cannot help us overcome. I am a survivor,
not the kind on TV reality shows, but a real Cancer survivor. I am so thankful to God
for His healing mercies and for giving me a testimony.
God blessed me and my little sailboat and brought
me to the other side where the sun is brightly shining. He delivered me from the storm
and the victory is mine through His mercy and grace.
I want to say “thank you” to all of you for
praying for me. God bless you!"

You have just read a very brief example of the
powerful, supernatural transformation of a person's life which is possible through the
acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
