Thankful to God: Texas Man Given 2 Months to Live Is Still Alive 6 Years Later

Here’s an incredible story that’s being called a miracle. And it’s also a poignant reminder of why Euthanasia can be a dangerous option for those diagnosed with terminal illness.

Full story can been read at CBN news.


Texas man Israel Lemus was given just two months to live after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, but is still alive six years later.  He is crediting God for keeping him alive.

In 2016, Israel Lemus was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. Scans revealed a tumour the size of a golf ball, and Lemus was told he only had two months to live.

Despite his diagnosis, Lemus has gotten married, purchased his first home and changed careers. Six years later he doesn’t feel sick.

“To me, it’s 100% God,” he told the outlet. “Honestly, I’m thankful to God for every day. The first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before going to sleep is thank God for that day.”

Noting that he doesn’t feel sick despite still having cancer, Lemus said, “The scans may show different, and the doctors may say different, but in my mind, I’m in remission.”

Doctors say Lemus’ survival is a mystery, while Lemus’ wife says “He’s my miracle. I tell him all the time.”
