Winny Penton was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer in 1968. She spent nine months in St. Clair's Hospital, St. John's before being sent back to Joe Batt's Arm to die. She decided that she would go to the shrine of St. Anne de Beaupre, outside Quebec City, with a group from the Roman Catholic Church in Newfoundland. Her family did not want her to go on this trip but she was determined. There was only one other woman going from Central Newfoundland, and for the most part she was alone. She ate when the rest of the group ate, she slept when they slept and she prayed when they prayed. Three weeks later she flew back to St. John's to see Dr. Bliss Murphy at St. Clair's Hospital. The nurses, Kathleen Power being one of them, could not believe that this was the same woman. Dr. Murphy thought that a mistake must have been made, that it could not be the same Mrs. Penton. Winny Penton was cured. There was no cancer. She is still alive today and living in long term care in the Fogo Island hospital, being treated there for Alzheimer's.
