I have a bad form of cancer that could kill me if it isn't treated. What do I have to do to get God to heal me?

How do you know if God healed you of something or if it was the medicine?
Billy Graham writes, "Did it ever occur to you that the doctors and the medicines might have been the tools that God used to bring healing to you?"
What are the signs of Alzheimer's? A relative of mine seems to be getting very forgetful.
I am not a medical doctor, of course - but I strongly urge you to share your concern with your aunt's doctor and arrange for her to be tested. Although Alzheimer's disease cannot be cured at present, I understand its development often can be slowed wit
Do you think we'll ever totally eliminate all sickness and disease, so we can go on living on this earth forever?
Billy Graham writes, "No, this is not what the Bible means by eternal life. Eternal life is life on a completely different level, because it means living in God's presence in heaven forever."
I've just been diagnosed with an incurable disease. Can you give me a reason not to kill myself?
Billy Graham writes, "The greatest burden you could ever place on your family would be for you to take your own life. Their confusion, hurt and guilt would be almost endless (no matter what you told them) ..."
I've prayed and prayed for God to heal me, but nothing happens. Why won't God answer?
Billy Graham writes, "Sometimes we don't think God is answering our prayers—but in reality He is, although not the way we expected. In other words, He is answering our prayers—but we don't realize it."
As a disabled person, how can I avoid falling into self-pity and despair, when I know I'm never going to get better?

My neighbor was diagnosed with cancer, and all it's done is make her angry at God.
Billy Graham writes, "I'm afraid people don't always think straight about God—and sadly, this seems to be the case with your friend."
Our son wants us to have a health care document about our treatment if we become incapacitated. Do you see any moral or religious objection to doing this?
Billy Graham writes, "Documents like this are a recent innovation, so the Bible doesn't say anything directly about them. However, I don't find any reason in the Bible to oppose them, as long as they uphold the dignity of human life."
Is it a sin to be depressed? The doctor says I have a chemical imbalance that can be treated with medication, but my friend says I just need to pray and have more faith.
Billy Graham writes, "Let me ask you a question: If you broke your arm in an accident, do you think your friend would claim it was a sin for you to have a broken arm, and all you needed to do was pray? I doubt it."
I have a lot of health problems now, and it's very difficult for me to get to church. Even when I go I can't hear. Do you think God will be upset if I just watch a service on television? I'll miss going, but I don't see any alternative.
I've faced a similar situation as I have grown older.
Recently, a friend had a kidney transplant that probably saved his life, and it's made me want to be an organ donor. Would anything in the Bible forbid this?
I find nothing in the Bible that would forbid organ donation - and in fact there's much in the Bible to support it.
I'm a cancer survivor (for which I thank God), but to be honest I live in constant fear that the disease will return. My daughter tells me I need to quit worrying so much about this, but I just can't help it. Maybe you have some suggestions.
