Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

  • The group of medical experts banded together to launch research studies and share data after concluding there was compelling evidence among their own patients to suggest a link between COVID and cancer diagnoses
  • “I’ve been in practice 23 years and have never seen anything like this,” Kashyap Patel, an oncologist in South Carolina and CEO of Carolina Blood and Cancer Care Associates
  • Patel, who is calling for a national registry to analyze trends, said he has already collected data from dozens of his own patients showing a possible link between unusual cancers and long COVID.
  • “Hopefully, we’re wrong,” Afshin Beheshti, president of the COVID-19 International Research Team, said. “But everything is, unfortunately, pushing toward that being the case.”
  • The US-based doctors are calling on the federal government to prioritize the research — given such answers could affect treatment for cancer patients, as well as management of the disease, over the next several decades.
