Spontaneous remission, also called spontaneous healing or spontaneous regression, is an unexpected improvement or cure from a disease that usually progresses.

Spontaneous remissions concern cancers of the haematopoietic system (blood cancer, e.g. leukemia), while spontaneous regressions concern palpable tumors; however, both terms are often used interchangeably.

Frequency of spontaneous regression in cancer
It has long been assumed that spontaneous regressions, let alone cures, from cancer are rare phenomena, and that some forms of cancer are more prone to unexpected courses (melanoma, neuroblastoma, lymphoma) than others (carcinoma). Frequency was estimated to be about 1 in 100,000 cancers.

Spontaneous remission exists as a statistical possibility and when it occurs it's not the result of prayer. The abrupt cure of a severely deformed child, now THAT would be a miracle.

This isn't the first case of spontaneous remission of an inoperable tumor (they're quite rare but do happen) and it won't be the last, but it doesn't prove that God or Gods exist.

I get the feeling that some atheists actually might HATE when these things happen.

I actually LOVE when they happen and wish they would happen even more, so science can hopefully try and figure out why they happen!

I think it is the sign of an unhealthy mind to think others hate it when someone does not die from cancer.

Of course, atheists will try to scramble for some explanation or act like it is just perfectly normal for cancer to vanish, but the doctors, ya know the real experts can't explain this one and are baffled. The survival rate for DIPG is very low and this cancer can not be cured through modern medicine. Yet she was completely cured through the power of prayer. Believe that!

So anything that happens with no definite cause must have been done by Jesus?

Uh-huh, so why can't Jesus heal amputees?

If Jesus wants to impress me, he can heal everyone.

So, why doesn't he?

What kind of sick perverted being runs a healing lottery?

A truly benevolent being doesn't grant some people's prayer requests some of the time, while totally ignoring others.
