Olympic figure skater Scott Hamilton shouldn't have survived his third brain tumor.

"The nature of them is to grow, and without treatment, they have no reason to shrink," Hamilton says in a new video.

Yet, God intervened.

"So I was the recipient of a spectacular miracle. I'm keeping an eye on it, and there's no treatment needed at this time," Hamilton says of his August 2016 diagnosis.

Even the doctors knew the results were divine.

"The doctors basically said, 'Whatever you're doing, keep doing it,'" Hamilton says. "And it was very funny, the surgeon that I would use if I were to take it out, I go, 'Can you explain this?' He just smiled and looked at me and goes, 'God.' That's it. Whoa. I was just a blubbering mess, like, 'I'm not worthy of this.' There's so many other people out there who could benefit from this miracle."
