How cancer was conquered
By Sharon Leech


Sharon Leech Posted on 01/07/2011


In 1996 I had cancer. It was in my left ovary and weighed seven pounds. 
This is what I have written in many letters telling of the miracle the Lord has done for me.


The day my miracle occurred it was a bright and sunny May morning. I was waiting for the nurse to come with my painkillers; being in bed had aggravated my arthritis. When I felt awful. Then the walls started coming to change shape alarmingly, they melted down like icing on the side of a cake and it was dark to me (writing this brings unpleasant memories even now) I thought I’m dying - this is it. I cried out in my head oh God please help me, I don’t want to die. Please let me live; please give me another chance. I know I’ve made a mess of things please forgive me, please forgive my sins”. I realized that Jesus had died for me and for everyone now and everyone who has ever lived or ever will live. He had hung and suffered for our sake. But he had rose again on the third day and through Him I could have eternal life, anyone can. Death was defeated that day. My plea for life was answered swiftly. A girl who was in the same ward saw there were tears on my eyes, she asked what was wrong. I said, “I think I’m going, please keep talking to me. Thankfully she shouted for a nurse as well. As soon as the new blood began to course through my veins I knew that because of Gods everlasting mercy and the precious nurse running for my fresh supply I had been truly BORN AGAIN. Even before the transfusion the walls returned to normal and the light went back on for me. Before the nurse ran for my transfusion she probably gave the worst possible advice to a dying person just lie back, relax and close your eyes

The morning the transfusion had finished I felt on top of the world. I was a born again Christian. A heart broken surgeon and nurses then told me it was bad news, - it was cancer. I cried out to God again. He answered wonderfully; He supplied a lovely specialist, Professor Crowther, at the Christie Hospital in Manchester. The maximum dose of chemotherapy (just as I’d asked for) finally killed off the cancer cells that had been left in my body after the hysterectomy. I was completely bald, thin and weak but I did not have cancer - praise God

To whoever is reading this I pray the Lord will wonderfully bless you with salvation. I pray that you too will invite Him into your life. You will have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’m not afraid of life anymore and I know when I die I’m going to heaven and will see my friend the Lord Jesus Christ. All my love in Jesus Sharon Leech

For many years, probably since my periods first began in my early teens, I have had a lot of problems. Prior to the operation, a hysterectomy, that had meant a lot of pain and blood loss over the years. Despite this we have three healthy boys and now four grand children, three boys and a girl all of which I love dearly. Ten days after the major operation I had to have an emergency transfusion. The well had run dry so to speak. I had caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror; a very old tired face stared back at me. I was very shocked, my red lips were pale pink, my skin was not its usual healthy colour, but had more of a putty look. My eyes - deep brown - had lost their life, they were dull. I looked literally like death warmed up. I had put this down to the operation and how much pain and blood loss there had been. I had thought now that I was eating and I had even managed to move about our little four bed ward a bit with the help of my sticks (I had had arthritis for some time)
