A child in a wheelchair walks again, after sleeping under an icon of the Panagia in her chapel.
August 15, 2012
His faith in the Panagia, and more specifically the Panagia of Valana in Lania, helped an eleven year old boy overcome serious health problems, while scientists had given up hope.
Regarding his moving story, the child and his parents spoke on the main television newscast of ΡΙΚ.
As mentioned, due to tumors in the head and spine, the child was confined to a wheelchair and doctors ruled out the possibility for him to walk again.
At Christmas the child was being treated at a hospital in Germany, and when he returned to Cyprus he had lost all hope for his healing, and he read a book of the history and miracles of Panagia of Valana. Since then, the desire of the child was to sleep beneath the icon of the Panagia, which, as he said, he saw three times in his sleep.
Last April he slept beneath the icon of Panagia of Valana in her chapel in Lania.
Since then his health has steadily improved, and today, the day of the feast of She Who is Full of Grace, the child visited and venerated the Panagia of Valana without a wheelchair, but walking.
