Last year on this day I was in surgery for the removal of a cancerous tumor. I thank God for raising me up afterwards, granting me health and life to this day. I especially want to thank the Mother of God, Healer of Cancer, known as Pantanassa. Her icon is below. If you would like a copy of the Akathist prayers that accompany this icon, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly send you a copy via email.
Love in Christ,
