St Peregrine (also Peregrinus) was born in 1260 in northern Italy.  Joining the Servants of Mary, or the Servites, as a young man, he was received by St. Philip Benizi, a superior whom Peregrine had slapped once during his youth.  As part of his penance, St. Peregrine chose to stand anytime it was unnecessary to sit.  As a result, he developed cancer on his leg and foot.  Just prior to his scheduled surgery for foot amputation, he was miraculously healed after spending many hours in prayer.  He is considered in some traditions as the patron saint of those suffering from cancer.  His feast day is celebrated on May 1.
