Saint Parthenius the Miracle Worker is the Patron Saint of Cancer Patients.
He is known to have performed countless miracles for those battling the disease. Not only did he heal people with cancer during his lifetime, but he has continued to do so since his repose.
Agios Parthenios, Bishop of Lampsacus, was a native of Asia Minor where his father Christopher served as a deacon. The youth did not receive adequate schooling, but he learned the Holy Scripture by attending church services. He had a good heart and distributed to the poor the money he earned working as a fisherman.
Filled with the grace of God, Saint Parthenios from age eighteen healed the sick in the name of Christ, and worked other miracles.
