As we reported this month, The Batman Forever star cryptically said he “did have a healing of cancer” and now explains he believes it was the power of prayer that defeated the disease.
“People that know I am a Christian Scientist make the assumption that I have somehow endangered myself,” says the star.
“But many, many people have been healed by prayer throughout recorded history and many, many people have died by whatever was modern medicine.
“I am very grateful for all the prayers…”
The 57-year-old, who up until recently denied all claims of ill health, also cited prayer as a key factor in his recovery when he was hospitalised in 2015 for a possible tumour.
“Even two of my doctors mentioned praying with me, for me,” he said.
Reports of the actor being ill emerged last October when his The Ghost And The Darkness co-star Michael Douglas, 72, told reporters that Val was fighting oral cancer.
Michael, who beat the illness in 2013, said: “Val is dealing with exactly what I had and things don’t look too good for him. My prayers are with him. That’s why you haven’t heard too much from Val lately.”
Following the revelations Val took to his Facebook page and wrote: “I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed… The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat. I have no cancer whatsoever.”
