We came to Christian Science for the healing of our son

We came to Christian Science for the healing of our son. He was always a very active child and perfectly well up to his eighth year; but just here something seemed to come on him which frightened us very much. We called our family doctor, and he pronounced his case epilepsy. For five long years we struggled on, trying many different physicians in that time, but he seemed to grow worse. There was one physician who asked that she might take the case for six months free of charge, and I am sure she did the best she knew for him, but at the end of three months we stopped, as he seemed to get worse.

After this we lost all faith in drugs, and it seemed that my heart was broken, to think that our only child must grow up with this dread disease. But how thankful I am that divine Love led us to try Christian Science! We did not know anything about it, but I went to see a practitioner and she told me that God could heal our boy; but as everything else had failed, we did not have much hope that this treatment would cure him. He had, I think, in all about five months' treatment in Christian Science, and at the end of that time he was perfectly healed. It has been four years now since there was any manifestation of the old trouble, and I can only say, "Thank God for this deliverance!" I shall not forget the loving help I have received from the different Scientists, and I hope to be able to help others as I have been helped.
