Canadian singer/songwriter Kelly Manu, was in a car accident in 2004. After the accident, she
became quite ill. “Although doctors treated my neck injury for two months, I sensed that
something far more serious was wrong with me,” Kelly says. Her intuition proved to be absolutely
right on. “I finally found a doctor who listened to me, and I was diagnosed with cervical cancer,”
she shares. “The cancer had spread through the left side of my body affecting my kidney and my
spine.” Kelly underwent chemotherapy, radiation and radical brachy treatment, almost dying in
the process. She then spent the better part of three years in bed, believing God for a miracle.
God not only performed a miracle of healing in Kelly’s physical body, but He also brought her into
a deeper relationship with Him than she had ever experienced.

“God has been so good to me,” Kelly says. “Although I was raised in a church and am the
daughter of Pastor Morvan Rowsell and Gospel Singer/Songwriter Wavie Rowsell, those three
years I was confined to bed brought me into reality. I have never felt as close to Jesus as I have
felt since I underwent treatment for cervical cancer. God was molding me so He could bring me
into a better place. As I prayed and waited, I drew closer to Him.”
