This is the story of how a a song bird healed Jennifer’s cancer.

Jennifer, a concert cellist, had stage 4 cancer of the breast which was starting to spread to her lungs. She was in deep depression. One evening, on the way home from a concert, she suddenly stopped the car in the middle of the woods. It was where she used to go alone as a child whenever her brothers bullied her, talking to herself and to Jesus. Her depression would vanish and she would go home happy.

So she returned to her forest cathedral in her deep depression. She took out the cello which played a deep low moan. Suddenly, a nightingale replied. She played once more. The nightingale responded again. For two hours, they had this concert – the nightingale, Jennifer, and the cello.

She frequented the woods to ‘talk’ to her nightingale. One evening, she recorded their music. As she played it back, the music echoed across the forest. Another nightingale replied, then another, then another. Six birds joined in all from different parts of the forest. Jennifer again recorded the entire concert of one cello and six birds.

She let her orchestra listen to the music. All were silent, listening in awe. Then, one by one, they joined in – the violins, the clarinets, the piano. The conductor started to point to different instruments. The seven cellos were the last, preparing Jennifer for her solo. Eventually, they played the song on camera at the Hollywood Bowl for thousands of listeners who gave a standing ovation.

The one-hour concert went viral in Youtube. Jennifer forgot that she had cancer. When she went for a checkup, the doctor was shocked. She was cancer-free. He asked curiously what she did to bring down her stage four cancer to stage zero. She said the Lord told the nightingales to heal her. Decades after, in her old age, Jennifer often returned to her forest cathedral, praying to her Healer and playing with her healers.
