Cancer-stricken apologist and author Nabeel Qureshi says he’s being moved to palliative care and doctors believe his body has entered the “final stages of life.”
Qureshi, a Christian convert from Islam who served with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries before he was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer in August 2016, posted an update to his video blog on Friday to share the unfortunate news that doctors have basically “given up” on treating him.
“I Wanted to give you a quick update of where we are — not the best news,” Qureshi said in the video while laying in a hospital bed. “The doctors have pretty much given up on treating me. They think my body is in its final stages of life. So, they have suggested palliative care and that’s what we are doing.”
Qureshi added that the doctors are now resorting to “comfort measures.”
“For example, the doctors have decided no more calories for me for a few days and if that means bad things happen then bad things happen,” he explained. “So, it’s looking pretty grim. I could really use your prayers. If we want the Lord to come through and do a miracle, it needs to happen in the next few days.”
The news comes as Qureshi had been hospitalized for over a month and had his stomach removed due to severe bleeding. Qureshi explained in a previous update that cancer had also spread to his liver.
