The Mysterious X-Ray Image of Saint Savvas of Kalymnos

Katherine Vlahou of Afandou, Rhodes was suffering from brain cancer. It came to the point where a physician was unable to heal her, so she put her hope in the Lord's power to heal. Fleeing to Kalymnos she sought the aid of Saint Savvas, having faith that Saint Savvas would heal her of her brain cancer. Having prayed before his icon and venerated his relics, she returned to Rhodes. A week passed and Katherine returned to the hospital for a check up and an x-ray. When the doctor came in to give her the results, two amazing miracles happened: the first was that all traces of the cancer were gone, and the second was what appears to be an image of Saint Savvas from the icon she had prayed in front of for her healing, and it appeared in the area where there was the cancer growth.
