A Dying Boy Is Given the Time He Asks for to Stay Alive for an Important Reason

Dr. Diane Komp, a Yale pediatric oncologist, described a 7-year-old girl who sat up in bed just before her death from leukemia and told her parents that beautiful angels were singing to her. A boy dying of leukemia said that God spoke to him and that he asked God to live another year so he could explain his death to his 3-year-old brother. Amazingly, against medical odds, the boy lived one more year. From her book, A Window to Heaven: When Children See Life in Death, Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing, 1992.
