The Near – Death Story of Mellen-Thomas Benedict
In 1982, I died from terminal cancer. My condition was non-operable. I chose not to have chemotherapy. I was given six to eight months to live. Before this time, I had become increasingly despondent over the nuclear crisis, the ecology crisis, and so forth. I came to believe that nature had made a mistake that we were probably a cancerous organism on the planet. And that is what eventually killed me.
Before my near-death experience, I tried all sort of alternative healing methods. None helped. So, I determined that this was between me and God. I had never really considered God. Neither was I into any kind of spiritually and alternative healing. I read various religions and philosophies. They gave hope that there was something on the other side.
I had no medical insurance, so my life savings went overnight on tests. Unwilling to drag my family into this, I determined to handle this myself. I ended up in hospice care and was blessed with an angel for my hospice caretaker, whom I will call “Anne”. She stayed with me through all that was to follow.
We know from the story that Mellen-Thomas Benedict believe that he eventually died ...
Because God decided so
Because he was not operated
Because he did not have chemotherapy
Because of the altervative healing methods
Because he did not have any medical insurance
