Who is the Patron saint of Cancer?


Answer by  HelpfulMal (539)

St. Peregrine is typically considered the Patron Saint of Cancer Patients and Victims, however I've also heard that St. Aldegundis is the Patron Saint of just cancer. More recently, you can find a patron saint for just about every specific cancer type as well.

St. Aldegundis and St. Peregrine are the patron saints. St. Peregrine is a patron saint of persons suffering with cancer, as is St. Aldegundis. She died of breast cancer.
