‘Miracle:’ Turning Point event adult attendee thanks Dr. Carson for saving her life as a baby

‘God truly had his hands in this miracle’

A married woman with kids thanked Dr. Ben Carson at a Texas A&M university event last night for saving her life decades earlier.

Dr. Carson, a former pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center who later served in the Trump administration as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, spoke at the Turning Point USA event.

“God truly had his hands in this miracle,” Sara Bowker said. She was born with craniosynostosis, a condition where the skull improperly fuses together, according to Bowker.

“You gave me the opportunity to graduate high school, college, and start graduate school, play competitive sports, get married, have children,” Bowker said. “So while none of this was related to politics, I just wanted to say thank you.”

“God does amazing things!” Dr. Carson wrote on X. “Thank you for sharing your story, Sara!”

“I have had the enormous privilege and responsibility of operating on many children in my life,” he wrote. “I’m blessed to meet a lot of them who have grown up to be remarkable people.”

“God has a plan for your life! Remember to glorify him in all you do,” he wrote.
