At the tender age of 9, with only a few days to live due to terminal brain cancer,
Billy Burke was discharged from the hospital against doctor’s wishes. This decision was greatly influenced by his grandmother who was a faithful listener of
the Kathryn Kuhlman Ministry, headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. Billy’s grandmother believed that if she could get him into one of Ms. Kuhlman’s services,
he would be healed. After his hospital discharge,
Billy’s grandmother would
constantly say to him,
“When she touches you, you will be healed.”
preparing him for the miracle that was about to take place. Shortly after, Billy found himself in Ms. Kuhlman’s meeting at the First Presbyterian Church in
Pittsburgh, seated in the balcony among a couple thousand people.
In a moment, Ms. Kuhlman called for him. With assistance from the ushers, young
Billy was brought down to stand in front of her. As her hand reached for
him, he remembered the words of his grandmother,
“When she touches you...”
Ms. Kuhlman touched him,
the cancer was gone!
