Miracle Cure in Lourdes.

Antonia Raco, of a village near Potenzahas,Italy, has been confined to a wheelchair for four years due to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

According to a wikipedia article on the disease;

Eventually people with ALS will not be able to stand or walk, get in or out of bed on their own, or use their hands and arms. In later stages of the disease, individuals have difficulty breathing as the muscles of the respiratory system weaken. Although ventilation support can ease problems with breathing and prolong survival, it does not affect the progression of ALS. Most people with ALS die from respiratory failure, usually within 3 to 5 years from the onset of symptoms.

Raco is different, however.

After having traveled to the shrine in Lourdes, France this past August 5th, Raco has abandoned her wheelchair and has even "gone for a run".
She said, ''I felt a voice encouraging me and a strong pain in my legs'', while bathing in the waters at Lourdes.

She will be examined by specialist Adriano Chio - who has been treating her since 2006 - at Molinette Hospital in Turin Italy.

Videos of Raco, at home, walking around her house after the miracle can be found here and here.
The videos are in Italian, but interesting, never-the-less.
