Letter of Br. Ramon Bereicua Basauri from Japan to Br. Giovanni Bigotto, Postulator General

16/04/2007: Japan

Dear Brother Bigotto,
You must be waiting for this report which should have been in your hands long ago. I hasten to include some initial details of a letter sent by Mrs.
Cheryl Yamamoto. In it you will find what happened to her daughter Naomi Yamamoto who is a student at our school. Her mother is also the nurse at our school.

Dear Bro. Ramon,
I am so sorry for the long delay for the response. I was trying to get all the information together before I wrote it. I will write the dates and times.
Naomi came to school as usual and after school was, over left the school grounds to return home. While at school Naomi had complained of a headache.
On the way home she just sat on the floor at the railway station saying she had a cramp in her legs. Later in the evening she complained of severe back pain and of not being able to feel her legs and hands. I took her to an emergency hospital but they could not find anything wrong. All through the night sher cried that her back was hurting and that she was in pain. I took her to another hospital and they, too, could not find anything wrong. On May 19th 2006 at the Osaka City General Hospital, one doctor had an idea of what must be wrong. By this time Naomi could not move her body nor her hands and legs. She was paralyzed. The hospital did an MRI and found she had Transverse Myelitis or a cancer on the spine but as the symptoms were so suddened it may not be cancer. Naomi was on very strong pain killers and steroids. She was on lots of drugs and the doctors did say that even when she got better after the acute stage that she would be paralyzed. I prayed and prayed and Naomi was on so many prayer groups asking for the mercy of God and many novenas asking for the power of healing. Then Brother Ramon asked me to join him in a special novena to Brother Francois to obtain a cure. I did the novena and the prayer for her and so I firmly believe that the power of prayer is the cause of her present health. Naomi still has scar tissue on her spine and suffers from some mild paralysis but she is back at school leading a normal life. I want to acknowledge the miracle of healing to be recognized as a miracle. Please do tell me just where I must write to get the healing be a miracle attributed to Brother Francois. May God bless you all and THANK YOU for all the prayers.
Yours very sincerely in Christ,
Mrs Cheryl Yamamoto

Dear Bro. Bigotto, for me this is certainly an extraordinary cure due to Brother Francis. I dont know whether it makes a miracle but to see the little girl back at school leading almost a normal life is a sign for all of us that Brother Francois is eagerly wanting to grant us favours from heaven.
Lets continue praying to him. Best regards to one and all at EUR.
Sincerely in J.M.J.

Bro. Ramon Bereicua Basauri fms
