We may not always know why things happen the way they do, but we need to trust that God has it all under control. Bella Muntean is a strong, passionate high school freshman whose faith is inspiring people all over the world. Bella is a student at Riverside High School in Greenville, South Carolina who was diagnosed in January 2017 with osteosarcoma. “They gave me a 20% chance to live at first and I was like ‘No, I refuse to believe that.’ I know that I can do this, and I can make it. I’ve come so far,” Bella said.
Bella has spent a lot of time in the hospital since her diagnosis. But, after having surgery to remove a tumor and bone in her leg, she returned to school where she took on an advanced course load and pursued her passion for music. But, things got bad again and Bella took to social media to update her classmates. In the post, the teen said that she coughed up a piece of a bronchial tube and began internally bleeding in her lungs. After going back to the hospital, doctors told Bella the tumors had grown and that the treatment they gave her was not working. It was with a heavy heart that Bella announced she will be placed in hospice care. Still, Bella is staying strong proclaiming her trust in God.
“This is NOT the end. I know that God has a plan for me and that he does perform miracles. With every cell in my body, I believe that I will be healed by God and that a miracle will be performed for me. I will be living every second to the fullest, and I want to share that with you all,’ Bella wrote. “What I need right now is prayer. Please ask everyone you know to pray for me and send good vibes. Please send this to everyone you can think of. I need a miracle, but I believe it is coming!”
