This past year I was undergoing treatment for throat and lymph node cancer which consisted of both chemo and radiation at the same time. The radiation treatments were hard because they used a mesh mask over your face which is very tight and a few times I felt uncomfortable and had problems breathing as well as fear of my stomach being sick after chemo. This never happened. Thanks to God because one would probably choke to death. Each of the 37 treatments lasted 10 minutes and 10 to set up under a tunnel. (like catscan machine). I prayed and always felt the presence of God, however, there was one time under the machine, I could not reach God, I do not know why and I began to hyperventalate. Almost immediately an angel appeared, I did not see any form just knew an angel was there and I felt a soothing dusting twirling around me I cannot explain. I knew with all my heart this was my angel sent from God to help me through that one time exeperience during my treatment afterwards I thanked the radioligist technichians and was able to sit up without their help. At one time I doubted angels,ever existed but I am sure after that experience they are there - yet my angel has not appeared to me since, however I wish it would. I now believe in angels.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
