An Austrailian woman, who was miraculously healed of brain and lung cancer by praying to soon-to-be first Australian saint Mary MacKillop, has gone public.
Kathleen Evans, from Lake Macquarie south of Newcastle, has given her account of how she was cured of inoperable cancers in her lungs and brain.
She says she was told her lung and secondary brain cancer were inoperable and she was given only a few months to live.
Ms Evans says after being diagnosed she wore a picture of Mary MacKillop, with a piece of the nun's clothing attached, and prayed to her constantly, as did her family.
She says she was shocked when scans done 10 months later found the cancer was gone.
"That particular doctor said, 'what treatment did you have?'. I said none.
"He said, 'did you have alternate medicine?'. I said no.
"He said, 'well what did you do?'. I said, 'you probably wouldn't believe me' and I told him.
"His reaction was wonderful. He was blown apart."
