A North Carolina woman claims to have seen heaven and spoken to Jesus during the time she was pronounced clinically dead while she underwent surgery to remove her appendix.
"My heart must have stopped during surgery," said Debbie Cain, reports North Carolina FOX 8. "I started feeling this love from within, it was warm and as the light I saw started clearing through, I saw Jesus standing there. He looked down at me and without saying a word, He told me, 'Not now my child.' The next thing I knew, I was waking up in a recovery room."
Before her surgery, Cain says she was not religious, however, following her near death experience, she says she no longer doubts the existence of God and heaven. more >>
The World Health Organization has alarmed the international community with a new report on cancer rates around the world, warning of an incoming "tidal wave" of cancer that will be a human disaster unless urgent efforts are taken against it.
The report, based on the latest statistics on trends in cancer incidence and mortality worldwide, "reveals how the cancer burden is growing at an alarming pace and emphasizes the need for urgent implementation of efficient prevention strategies to curb the disease," according to a press release.
Dr. Bernard Stewart from the University of New South Wales in Australia, one of the editors of the report, noted that prevention had a "crucial role in combating the tidal wave of cancer which we see coming across the world," according to BBC News. more >>

Alabama neurosurgeon Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw, 62, who is being widely praised for trekking six miles in snow to perform life-saving brain surgery on a man who only had a 10 percent chance of living said the patient's survival is a "miraculous event" and his life is now in "the Lord's hands."
Speaking with reporters at a press conference held at Trinity Medical Center Thursday, Hrynkiw explained that he was aware of the dire condition of the patient when he decided to make the six-mile trek on foot Thursday because he had been communicating with hospital staff.
"I saw the CT scans. They texted me the image and this man's gonna die. He had a 90 percent chance of death. And the nurses and the ER physician who also called me while I was walking was telling me he was deteriorated, went into unconsciousness and he was dying," said Hrynkiw in a video of the press conference posted to al.com. more >>
The current American version of Universal Healthcare (UHC), Obamacare, has been the subject of not a little debate. One side seems to think it is a literal panacea. The other places it somewhere between overt communism or the total collapse of the U.S. economy and Satan worship accompanied by child sacrifices.
I have not devoted much time either to thinking or writing about Obamacare. It is a law in the process of implementation. Presidential candidates who ran promising to repeal it were defeated. We now deal with the consequences, good, bad or neutral.
Leaving aside from Obamacare for the moment, I am striving to discern why Universal Healthcare seems distasteful to so many. Is it wrong to want people to be healthy and physically whole as much as possible? more >>
Christian entertainer Carman Licciardello, who goes primarily by his first name, has revealed that he is doing much better and that the cancer he has been battling will be gone in three weeks. Carman has big plans for after he is fully recovered and wants to start a new project to be on 100 stages across America.
Carman fell ill a few weeks ago and battled an intense fever, which doctors said was normal for cancer patients. He chose to reveal all in a message to fans and followers in a personal message on Facebook, where he has kept everyone updated on his health struggles.
"The problem with me was that I developed some sort of virus and they couldn't identify it until the fevers dropped or broke. So I was admitted with 104 temp, shaking chills and my thumb getting ready to type as fast as it could and post on Facebook. Cause I knew once this got to these 'Prayer Savages' I have on my team – the Devil was facing a series [serious] New Jersey beat down. They could not stop the fevers, the lowest they would go was 102. So I put on my 3 time UFC Champion and friend 'Royce Gracie' t-shirt I got for Christmas, just for attitude – I must have slept 15 hours and when I woke up I was soaking wet," Carman wrote. more >>
