Mrs Hopson, who later gave birth to six children, broke her silence at the weekend about how Josephite sisters successfully prayed to Mary MacKillop on her behalf and the disease disappeared. The miracle was verified by the Vatican in 1993.
■ Kathleen Evans, mother of five and grandmother of 20. In the 1990s she was diagnosed with inoperable lung and brain cancer, for which chemotherapy and radiotherapy did not work.

Ten months later, tests showed no signs of cancer, only scarring where it had been.this happened in 2009
