Prostate Cancer and faith go hand in hand as I found out when I prayed for healing for my recently diagnosed prostate cancer. Any apprehension I initially felt faded away at that point.
Navigating the shoals of nothingness in this world stands in sharp contrast to our being guided by the light of religious faith. “Faith,” as used in my book, Conquer Prostate Cancer, partially refers to my trust in God’s goodness in helping me get through surgery in order to cure cancer. My faith was also evident in terms of the trust I placed in my surgeon to help me become cancer-free.I also had faith in myself that I could conquer prostate cancer by proactively eliminating my pain and stress. Last I had great faith or trust in my family and friends to support me and be there for me.
Fortunately the cure I prayed for came rapidly. I did not have to torture myself with an old Jewish saying that, “God provides. But if only He would provide until He provides!”
The answer to my prayers came in the form of a urologist who was both skilled and humane. How fortunate I was that after a “mis-step” with my first doctor I found one of the finest robotic docs on Florida’s Gulf Coast. I had moved there from Boston in September 2006.
Was it a coincidence or not that he too moved to my new hometown of Sarasota (in his case, from Miami) just two months before I got there? This surely was one of God’s little miracles.
