When I was a teenager, my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A successful surgery removed the tumor and he is still alive more than 25 years later.
Today I got curious and wanted to learn if cancer was mentioned in the Bible and did an Internet search.
According to Got Questions, "The Bible does not say anything specifically about the disease of cancer. However, that does not mean that it does not address the issue of diseases. King Hezekiah was sick from a "boil" (2 Kings 20:6-8), which could have in reality been cancer under a different name."
So why am I bringing up this disease? Because there are many resources available online for people struggling with cancer.
