A couple of months ago I met an older Caucasian gentleman. I'd guess in his 60s. He told me he was a cancer survivor. He said he had had a tumor the size of his hand in his left kidney back in 1996. It was removed, along with an adrenal gland, but he suffered complications from the surgery including a collapsed left lung. As a result he had to spend two weeks in the ICU at a local hospital.
He said sometime during his ICU stay when he was feeling at his worst and in fact fearing he'd die, he saw a lady who looked to be in her late 60s and dressed in a maroon colored gown walk into the ICU where he was and immediately make a bee line toward him. According to the gentleman, she walked right up to him while he was in bed, grabbed his left arm, and with the deepest blue eyes he had ever seen, eyes which he said "saw straight through me," "piercing" through him, she said in an authoritative and commanding voice, "Fear not, for God is with you!"
Then she spun around and walked out of the ICU. He said when she spoke these words, he suddenly felt such immense peace and comfort, and he knew all would be well.
He said he would've thought he was just hallucinating all this had it not been for his brother who happened to be there by his bedside visiting him while he was in the ICU. He said his brother also saw the woman say and do all this.
The following day he said he tried to look for the woman so he could thank her. He asked all the doctors and nurses and other staff who she was and how he could find her. He thought she was another patient because she was dressed in what he thought must've been a hospital gown. But he said no one else had ever even seen or heard of such a woman. He never figured out who she was.
However it was after this that he began attending church (or attending church again).
