Annabel Beam was just five years old when she was diagnosed with two incurable disorders.
Treatments for pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and antral hypomotility disorder - life-threatening digestive disorders - kept her in and out of the hospital for years.
In 2011, another tragedy struck. While Annabel was climbing a tree, a branch gave way, sending Annabel falling 30 feet headfirst into a hollowed-out cottonwood tree.
After several hours, an emergency fire crew managed to harness Annabel to safety and she was rushed to the hospital in a helicopter.
Incredibly, not only did Annabel survive the terrible fall without injury, the symptoms of her disorders miraculously disappeared.
Annabel's mother, Christy, tells the story of her daughter's amazing journey to heaven and back in the new book, "Miracles From Heaven."
Annabel, now 12 years old, and Christy joined Elisabeth Hasselbeck on "Fox and Friends" today to share their story of healing.
Christy explained that her daughter was in constant pain for much of her childhood. At one point Annabel even said that she wanted to die and go to heaven to live with Jesus.
Annabel revealed that when she fell out of the tree and was unconscious, she actually visited heaven.
"I saw heaven and it was really bright, and I saw my Mimi who had died a couple years back," Annabel explained. "And that's how I knew I was in heaven."
"I believe that I was cured because ... I asked Jesus if I could stay with him, and he said, 'No, Annabel, I have plans for you on Earth that you cannot fulfill in heaven ... Whenever I send you back, there will be nothing wrong with you,'" Annabel said.
Since the accident, Annabel has not been hospitalized for her digestive disorders, which has confounded doctors. Christy revealed that Annabel is now asymptomatic and is currently on zero medications.
