10 years ago ang pinagdadasal ko lang naman ay ang gumaling, wala akong idea na gagawin mo pala akong instrumento para ako naman ang makapagpagaling ng iba. Sobrang amazing mo Lord! Thank you! I am now licensed to heal," Gacias wrote on Facebook.

According to Inquirer, Gacias was diagnosed with “Malignant Germ cell tumor, a kind of lung cancer,” on July 2008 when he was only 19 years old.

At the time na ma-diagnose po ako, worries ko ay mag-stop ako sa studies as a nursing student. And also, takot din ako kasi I’m the eldest in the family,” he said.

Pero God is good kasi nakasurvive naman po,” he said. 

Without the help/support of my family and friends hindi ko din naman masu-survive lahat.”

In his post, Gracias dedicated his success to his mother and brother who are now both “in heaven.”

Para sa inyo to Mommy and honeyboy Al Jules Sean Gacias in heaven. #10YearChallenge #CancerSurvivor.”

His mother was also diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on 2006 and died December the same year while his brother died because of an accident.

He (brother) is one of the main reasons why ako nag med,” Gracias added.

Gacias also gave an advise to students and cancer patients like him.

Kahit anong struggle sa buhay just focus on your goals no matter how hard it is. Kasi God will make a way,” he said.

Magtiwala lang tayo kay Lord…Wag po tayong mawalan ng pag-asa, laban lang everyday.”

Gracias’ post already garnered over 38,000 reactions and 10,000 shares as of writing.
