According to doctors, the medical condition of Floribeth Mora Diaz was hopeless. Her recovery from a brain aneurysm was recognized by Pope Francis as the miracle that allowed the canonization process of John Paul II to be completed and to declare him a saint. Due to the location and the rarely occurring type of the aneurysm, it could have not been operated. Floribeth prayed to John Paul II to intercede for her with God. Her children and husband also prayed for her miraculous cure. A few weeks after her stroke, on 1st May, 2011, Floribeth was watching a TV transmission of the beatification of John Paul II from Vatican. An inner voice told her to get out of bed. She was cured. Doctors say that she was cured in a way that science cannot explain.
