  1. A person I know was told he had a melanoma in his retina. When he went to MD Anderson for treatment they told him it was gone. I feel it was a miracle, and that he was healed through prayers.

    One of my prayer intentions was answered. One cancer patients has gotten good new and has beat the odds. God is good!

  3. Yesterday we received the news that my mothers’s MRI showed her cancer had spread to her lymph nodes but today the doctor said she is only in stage 1-A and will only need a mastectomy. We are overjoyed for this news because the suddenness of the onset and bad MRI had us fearing the worse. I gave this to our Holy Mother and St Peregrine. Thank you!

  4. Midway through the Novena, my sister-in-law’s biopsy came back clear of cancer. But on top of that, she couldn’t believe how great she was doing all through her surgery and after, and how much she felt supported by her family. She and her family are so grateful for her good report. I ask St. Peregrine and the Heavenly angels to pray she finds ongoing strength, healing, and spiritual growth through the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you for prayers through this group and God bless everyone.

  5. Thank you St Peregrene for healing and for everyone who have prayed this novena, I wish healing for everyone suffering from cancer

  6. I just had a long phone conversation with one of my daughters and remarkably, she has changed her attitude about her pain and is so much more positive.

  8. I really felt weird praying for my heel. It’s kept me in pain for over a year. I have had steroid shots, custom orthotics, stopped exercising, taken medication. It is extremely obvious that after the first day of this prayer, the pain substantially stopped. I haven’t taken my pain medicine. I truly believe wholeheartedly this worked. I didn’t even pray it aloud except today. Honestly, I don’t even know who you were St. Peregrine. I will now. I thank you and all the saints. I love you God and holy family. You have blessed me beyond belief and I’m very grateful, undeserving but grateful. Amen

  9. Two people prayed for me this week and reached to tell me. I’ve been suffering from anxiety for a long time and these prayers help to ease it.
    Thank you and God Bless.

We got awesome news yesterday that it is contained in the one breast. Praise God thru our Lord Jesus Christ and the intercession of St Peregrine. God Bless All

  20. The doctors found that the tumor of 3 yr old, Liesl is very large but appears to be contained and has not spread. For that we are extremely thankful! Please pray for her family, as well as her doctors as they prepare for surgery to remove the tumor.

  21. Thank you St. Peregrine for hearing and intercedeing for us to the Lord. Dear Lord thank you for hearing and always answering our prayers in accordance to Your Will. Amen

  23. I’m sorry but I don’t have good news at this time. However I would like for this group to continue praying for my brother Luis. He has just been informed that the cancer which started in his voice box and left side of his head. Has now spread to the right. The doctor told him that there’s nothing he can do for him. Apparently the chemo is not helping. He has about 4 to 7 weeks to live.😭

  28. Just visited with the doctor. Rich’s heart looks good. So far nothing back on the stuff they took out of his lungs. All the other tests they did came back negative. He is responding to the antibiotics, finally! His white blood cell count is better than it has been in years, 7,800! Down from 11,000+ it was. He is headed in the right direction! They are weaning him off sedation so he can start breathing more on his own. Once he is able to do that comfortably the ventilator will come out! Please keep the prayers coming, they are working! Love you all!

  29. My friend was diagnosed with cancer in her breasts, lymph nodes, and spine in September 2022.
    The doctors from Mayo put her on medication. I am adorer at my church. I put her name on the list to be prayed for. I also prayed to Padre Pio and just recently St. Peregrine’s novena. I received news today that the tumors are gone, the cancer is gone! She will still have to be on medication for the rest her life to make sure it doesn’t return. Praise to God and thanks to Padre Pio and St. Peregrine!

    My niece’s lymph node mass is benign and her CA marker is dropping. May her life glorify you Lord!

  31. I have been praying for my daughter’s father-in-law who has been diagnosed with cancer on his spleen. Many of us have been praying that he will be healed, hoping the cancer has not already spread. Yesterday, we got the good news that a Pet scan revealed that the only cancer in his body is on his spleen. Knowing the cancer is contained is the answer to our prayers. It is not yet known whether he will have the spleen removed, or whether he might have to go through chemo or radiation.

  34. I have to say, I was not completely healed, but yesterday I was able to do two things that I have not been able to do for 5 years. This is a partial answer to my prayer.

  35. This is my 3rd round of the St Peregrine Novena. I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer 20 months ago. While not cured, treatment and prayer have given me 20 more months with my family and I thank God every day for that!

  37. On Day 1, I ask for healing for my hurting legs that makes my walking difficult. Towards the end of the prayer, I felt my left leg loosening up from tightness. Since then no more tightness, cramping nor pain. I am able to walk without much support and it is day 9 today! Thank you for St. Peregrine’s intercession. Praise God.

He is blessed to learn today that his tumor is shrinking already and the debilitating pain that he was having is gone. Another friend with cancer faced a large cancer surgery and she too did great is on the way to healing.

    Thank you so much for all of the prayers.

My brother Todd is having surgery tomorrow (avoiding a last chemo treatment) – a difficult surgery called a Whipple procedure to remove the tumor in the head of his pancreas, reroute the pancreas and remove part of the small intestine and the gallbladder. Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you St Peregrine for sparing him another chemo treatment and in decreasing the cancer activity in preparation for surgery.

  46. I have had issues with my right leg for the past 6-8months. Pain and swelling after being exposed to strenuous activities.

The result was a benign ovarian cyst and a very small precancerous or cancerous tumor in her uterus, which was removed. I have not heard the results of a lymph node test. Only needed Motrin for pain afterwards. Praise God.

  50. I know who I am in Christ. Yet, I cannot shake these roller coaster feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, shame, fear and regret. And, it’s difficult to forgive and not feel resentful. I need prayers for healing (mental, physical, spiritual and financial). Most especially healing to forgive and for a new spirit of joy. Please pray for me.

  51. Rick has shown signs of healing from his diagnosis of lung cancer following a battle with esophageal cancer 2 years ago. Thank you.

  52. Sorry my testimony is coming late but it’s better than not testifying at all.

  57. I have been praying to St Peregrine since April when my 17 year old granddaughter received the news that she had a rare cancer. Since then she has responded very well to her chemo and infusion treatments. I believe St Peregrine has heard my prayers and helping her overcome her cancer. Prayers do help!!

  60. This is the second time I have done this particular Novena to St. Peregrine along with praying the Rosary for Our Lady’s intercession as often as I can for over a year now since I completed treatment and thank God so far all tests are coming back clear. A truly wonderful Saint and Novena to pray to.

  61. My prayers have been answered on many requests since I started receiving the novena prayers few months ago. We prayed for the successful sale of a business and that prayer was quickly answered. We prayed for the sale of a house and that prayer was successfully answered. We prayed that our mother would learn to accept her move to an assisted living facility and that prayer has been answered as she is now happy and acceptant of her new home. I am continuing to pray for a healing of cancer for a family member and for an upcoming legal issue that has brought much unfair bandage of pain and stress to our family. Thank you for sending the novenas to me.

  62. Yesterday, Day 8 of the Novena, I learned Benny, my neighborhood butcher who I was praying for, is now safe in the arms of Jesus. No more brain cancer, no more pain, just peace in Heaven. His good deeds go before him. May his memory be a blessing. I’m a better person for having known him. 😢🙏🏻❤️

  64. I was experiencing profound dysphagia after an esophageal stent placement that was done precisely in order to relieve profound dysphagia (grrrr) caused by esophageal cancer. The dysphagia was as greatly diminished right at the start of this novena and I am now able to swallow food far more comfortably. Also, my cancer treatments have been far more successful than we had hoped. This is my second Novena to St. Peregrine since August 21. He’s a great friend in need. Don’t give up!

  65. I am so blessed. They decided to try a cancer infusion on my even though gene markers were negative for it working/having any effect on my cancer. Ct scan showed that the lesions had not grown and diffusion had lessened. I am getting good results and prayer/novenas definitely are part of it.
    God is merciful.

On day four of this novena she went for her normal treatment and the doctors found no trace of cancer . There is no other explanation that she was healed by our Lord Jesus

  70. Infant Kevin is responding to radiation and tumor is shrinking. No side effects from radiation, Pet Scan is good, cancer has
    Not spread.

    Toddler Teresa is home from hospital and has finished chemo, so far all tests are good.

    Bith still need prayers.

  71. Praise be to God for answered prayers. I joined all of you in praying this Novena to St. Peregrine on behalf of my family, especially for my nephew David. He was diagnose with stage 3 pancreatic cancer. Some scans revealed concerned with cancer spreading. More tests were done and biopsies came back negative for cancer and the more intensive scans came back clear! Thank you St. Peregrine and Mama Mary for taking my/our prayers to the Foot of the Cross. We continue to pray to St. Peregrine for all cancer patients and for a cure. May he continue to intercede for us. Jesus I trust in You. Amen

  72. I have been praying to St Peregrine for a long time for any friends who have cancer. It is during this Novena that I received the good news of one of my friends whose cancer is almost completely gone and no longer needs immunotherapy.
    Praise God!!

  73. We prayed for peace and comfort, for our brother-in-law Paul, recently diagnosed with lung cancer….he passed last night, to his eternal home, peacefully and with family by his side. Rest In Peace, Fitzi!

  74. My friend Paul has suffered from anxiety, depression and just being around people for years, so much (so that he can’t hold a job where even talking to people is impossible), yesterday 1-16-2023 he actually asked me to help him find a behavioral Dr. to assist him with these illnesses as he had tried and was told no new patients were being accepted. I called my Dr. for a referral and was guided to the same people that Paul had called. After speaking to the customer representative, she asked for his information and told me a nurse would call him within 5 days, what a Grace for all the prayers I have prayed for his recovery, and I think St. Peregrine is one of many Saints interceding for my friend Paul! Thank You John Paul, Annie and All here praying with and for us! Martin A Anchondo
