My Uncle John Ahee is celebrating 23 years of being cured of Brain Cancer. He is such an inspiration to me.
At the age of 32, 23 years ago, John Ahee was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, an extremely rare form of brain cancer in adults. Medical experts told him that the tumor in his cerebellum gave him only a 20 percent chance of surviving the next five years.
Ahee’s father made telephone calls to everyone he could reach out to, including Cardinal Edmund Szoka. The former Archbishop of Detroit agreed to pray and say mass for Ahee.
The family believes that Casey had sent a message through Szoka, telling Ahee to refuse chemotherapy, only a few days before it was scheduled to start.
