19 year old American, Peter Srisch, claims he was cured from a tumour after meeting Ratzinger and receiving his blessing a year ago
A young American who is now 19 and in his second year at university claims he was cured of a chest tumour thanks to Ratzinger, who met the boy at an audience in Rome last year. Ratzinger listened to his story and placed his hand on the boys chest where the tumour was. Peter Srisch and his family appeared on Denver-based KUSA TV and confirmed their belief publicly.
Peter was 17 when doctors diagnosed him with a chest tumour after doing an X-Ray. "He had a chest x-ray and it revealed a softball sized tumour in his chest. It was determined that it was stage four non-Hodgkin's lymphoma," Laura Srsich, Peter's mother, said.
Peter was being treated at Colorado Childrens Hospital and while doctors tried to do what they could to help him fight the disease, he was also being looked after by the U.S. non-profit Make-a-Wish Foundation. The foundation works in about 50 countries across the world, offering assistance, including psychological support to children and young people with life-threatening medical conditions and granting each of them one wish. The Make-a-Wish Foundation was established in 1993 and has a strong presence in English-speaking countries but not only.
Laura Srsich said that when she spoke to Peter about it, the first wish that came to his mind was: 'I'd love to go meet the Pope in Rome.

Benedict XVI Cured My Cancer”
Walter Heisenberg White
Actually the healing was through HOLY SPIRIT.
That's not the story I read yesterday. The boy credited God and medical science for healing his cancer. He met Benedict AFTER he completed his treatments and was cured. Is this a set-up for future canonization material for Pope Benedict?
Correct. Note that the boy never said that, what the boy did say was that his cancer was cured thanks to prayers by Pope Benedict. the Holy Spirit cured the boy, no doubt, and prayers by all, including the Pope no doubt helped.
Yeah, the fix is in. You know how Catholicism works.......
The link in the article is to a secular news source in Denver. If it's a set up, then the TV station is in on it, too. The original article was published February 13, two days after Benedict announced his resignation so that's of interest, I think. It's possible this came out in the wave of emotion that accompanied his resignation and if he has changed his story since February, then I'd be happy to acknowledge that.
For the record, this would have no bearing on any canonization process. Putative miracles must occur after death.
