The power of faith combined with the miracle of medicine

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 07/04/2015

Faith, it is often said, can move mountains. And there is no doubt that the deeply religious family of north Down teenager Joshua Martin believe that prayers from around the world have given them renewed hope for the boy's recovery from an aggressive form of cancer.

One tumour has shrunk and no new signs of the disease have emerged in the most recent scan. Of course the skill of the treating clinicians must be acknowledged, but faith can also work its own mysterious power. Our prayers and good wishes continue to go to Joshua as he prepares for more treatment in his battle for life.
